Opening Reception: April 5, 7:00pm to 10:00pm

Open daily from 11:00am to 6:00pm

Consumed presents interactive, instructional food-based artworks by Basil AlZeri, Diane Borsato, Mark Clintberg, Myung-Sun Kim, Sooyeong Lee, Max Lupo, Peter Morin, Lisa Myers, and Dana Prieto. Visitors are invited to enact the newly conceived and reimagined rituals put forward by these artists with food and supplies offered in the gallery space. Building on the histories of relational aesthetics and multi-sensorial engagement, Cluett believes that “[t]his thesis achieves a new understanding of the nuanced complexities of mealtime rituals and suggests that current approaches to eating may be in need of some adjustment.” Artist’s multiples of the instructional works are also available for visitors to take home and experiment with in other environments.
