EXPLORING THE IMPORTANCE OF FOOD IN CONTEMPORARY CULTURE, FOOD FOR THOUGHT is a hands-on, multi-media investigation of food-related imagery and ideas created through the lenses and imaginations of visual artists.
The exhibition, co-curated by Hallie Cohen, Director of the Hewitt Gallery and Chair of the Art & Art History Department and Associate Professor of Art Millie Falcaro, explores the multi-dimensional aspects of eating and taste – from production to consumption – and showcases how art reflects our need for, and fascination with, the culinary. Bringing together artists from a multitude of disciplines, FOOD FOR THOUGHT presents an experience where art meets science, and nature influences culture.
Participating artists: Barbara Ciurej & Lindsay Lochman, Lauren Gerrie, Jeph Gurecka, Lindsay Kreighbaum, Margaret Lee, Gwyneth Leech, Monica Maleweska, Spurse, Tracy Miller, David Pettibone, Mary Tiegreen.
