EATING IN PUBLIC was founded in 2003 in Hawai’i by Gaye Chan and Nandita Sharma. They implement systems of free autonomous exchange outside of the State and capitalist regimes in order to reclaim the commons and to relearn how to be commoners.
Their projects take place on private and public space, generally without permission. Believing that the functionality of their work depends of their continued presence, most projects are permanent. Projects that occur in galleries, due to their temporary nature, are staged as demonstration and distribution centers–informational and material–to facilitate the expansion of more permanent systems of autonomous exchanges. Past venues include San Jose Museum of Art, Southern Exposure (San Francisco), Queens Museum of Art (Queens, New York), Flux Factory (Bronx, New York), and the Honolulu Museum of Art.
