The exhibition showcases artworks by artists from around the world, including: Liu Bolin (China), Vik Muniz (Brazil), Pepe López (Venezuela), Jim Draper (US), and Edward Burtynsky (Canada).
The We Are What We Eat launch event will begin with a panel discussion focused on food safety and security, with key speakers such as H.E. Ambassador Lot Dzonzi Deputy Permanent Representative of the Permanent Mission of Malawi to the United Nations, Jack Brewer, Sally Kader of the United Federation for Peacekeeping and Sustainable Development, Aaron Levi Garvey, and RiceBran Technologies CEO W.
