September 6 through October 9, 2013

Where: Willard Wankelman Gallery

Food is unlike any other object of consumption because it is necessary for life, yet we have highly complex societal, cultural and individual relationships with it. The work in this exhibition considers some of the issues, attitudes and associations that food engenders and symbolizes. Curated by Jacqueline Nathan with Marce Dupay and Wynn Perry.
