Since 1998, a broad-based popular movement under the leadership of Hugo Chávez's Bolivarian government has been effecting sweeping changes in all levels of Venezuelan life and in the field of international power relations. A series of exhibitions at the Berkeley Art Museum curated by Chris Gilbert bring together works by media collectives and worker-produced videos that constitute an incitement and encouragement to this process of people taking power in Venezuela and internationally.

The museum wanted to change the concept of the exhibition cycle from being in solidarity with the workers and revolutionary movements to a "neutral" term. As a consequense Chris Gilbert resigned, read his critique of the current political climate here: www.16beavergroup.org/journalisms.

FRUIT takes up the challenge of elevating the ecological knowledge of consumers and encouraging a way of life that is friendly to the environment. We want consumers to be conscious of the entire life of a product, from production to utilization, and not just what they see in the stores. Consumers must be aware that every phase of a product's life influences the environment and ourselves.

Free Soil has produced a run of FRUIT wrappers, a website, and a traveling installation as part of an initiative to inform people about alternative food systems and local food movements. The wrappers are disseminated throughout the food chain by piggybacking on oranges. Information will be carried through the food system and into the hands of consumers. The wrapper holds information on a variety of aspects concerning food movements, transport and urban farming. Get your daily dose!
