The Art of Food


Artists from Lorna Simpson to Andy Warhol explore the iconography and culture of food

Showing how artists in the 20th and 21st centuries have considered this universal subject, The Art of Food provides a lens with which to examine food beyond its purpose as body fuel. Food is integral to our relationships, cultures and languages. We transform it by cutting, cooking and dressing it. We use food as an intermediary to connect with others through holiday meals, business lunches and dates. We deny food to others as a tool of suppression and cultural erasure. Through the works of artists such as Enrique Chagoya, Damien Hirst, Hung Liu, Analia Saban, Lorna Simpson and Andy Warhol, from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation, it becomes clear why food is a recurring subject in art.
