Exploring Food as We See It: The Art of Cooking

Iphoneography by Paula Lauren Gibson/AfroPix

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.”

About Afropix

When my father gave me a Kodak Brownie as a child, I fell in love with photography. I have been shooting pictures ever since. I am also an avid genealogist and can trace one of my family lines back to 1620! Check out my photography at afropixphotography.com!
