September at the Earth Market: Explore the Earth Markets International Network with an eye on the Earth Market Lebanon through an exhibit by David Szanto, Lebanese Takeaways

The exhibit has traveled from Lebanon to Montreal to Waterloo, Ontario, to Forlì, Italy to Greenville, S.C.


“In October 2007, my friend Gigi Frassanito traveled to Lebanon for Slow Food’s Mercati della Terra project, actualizing some farmers’ market research that the two of us had done a year earlier during our master program in Italy. For a little over two weeks, Gigi narrow-cast a series of short emails, informal impressions of his time there. I found his snapshots hypnotizing, both lyrical and a troubling wake-up to the fact that I clearly knew almost nothing about food in Lebanon. In Montreal, I frequently buy tabbouleh, shish taouk, and baba ghannouj from the cheap-and-cheerful take-out place on the corner: tasty, de-contextualized, and translated. Gigi’s emails are also removed in time and space (as well as mediated by my English renderings), yet their framing as electronic postcards makes both their origin and interpretation more evident. As documentarian Liz Miller has said, what’s interesting about translation is what gets added, and what gets taken away.”
