Food and Art
What is it about food in art that both seduces and repulses us? How does food awaken our critical faculties? And how can we use food in our own art practice?
This intensive class is about the use and portrayal of food in art, and how food serves both as an inspiration as well way as critique. The class will be a mixture of looking at, tasting, drawing/painting and even some sculpting around the theme of food in art. We will examine food in art history and talk about how food has been perceived and used in art. We will also watch films, and possibly go on fieldtrips to restaurants that use untraditional food servings and they can talk about their passion for food.
