About the series:
Crave: Art, Food, & Social Experience
Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum presents Crave: Art, Food, & Social Experience. Food, like art, builds bridges between people. The sharing of food inspires communal behavior akin to art's capacity for dialogue and understanding. Creating an exchange between culinary and visual nourishment, Crave is passionate inquiry through food, thought, and exciting visual imagery.
From early still–life paintings of Renaissance feasts to Rirkrit Tiravanija’s contemporary performances involving Thai cuisine, there is an established tradition of artists considering food to explore aesthetic ideas and encourage critical engagement. Crave comprises a series of artist–orchestrated, themed meals as an innovative form of cultural outreach and hospitality that results in resonant, cultural experiences. Food is an increasingly impassioned topic; the politics of how and what we eat have emerged as critical issues of our time. Now more than ever, food issues are ripe to be examined through the artistic lens.
