Intended to induce “the pleasures of the table,” the exhibition showcases artists who obsess, explore, and celebrate food in their work from depictions of gourmet meals to donuts. Curated by Hanne Mugaas, founder of Art Since the Summer of ’69, an art space on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, the exhibition presents work in a range of media, from drawing and painting to digital prints and clothing.
“Food has always been present in art, and something we can all relate to as a social signifier and everyday source of pleasure,” says Mugaas. “With this show I wanted to focus on contemporary artists who represent food in interesting but also humorous ways.”
