KSW's Sensory Feast Of Local Flavors

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

If you don't love food I don't really want to know you. And if you don't want to have a good time with food - I surely don't want to know you - which all leads me to the following statement:

I ate all those Wasabi peas.

Now I have nothing to munch on and I'm kinda hungry.

Curated by Kearny Street Workshop Opening Thursday, April 7, 6-8pm 18Reasons 593 Guerrero St. @ 18th San Francisco, CA Exhibition on view through May 27. Gallery hours by appointment or during public events. To schedule an appointment, email info@18reasons.org Are you what you eat? The nine artists of A Sensory Feast: Local Flavors ask you to take a closer look--or even a whiff--at the meaning of food. Beyond sustenance, nourishment, comfort and ritual, we live in an increasingly food-obsessed world. An inseparable part of Asian cultures, food marks migrations and milestones; it can provoke our deepest memories. Through taste, smell, touch, sound, and sight, this show investigates how food can shape our perceptions of the cultures and identities they can represent. These artists play with their food and invite you to do the same. Featuring Jean Chen, Brandon Bigelow, Sita Kuratomi Bhaumik, Yosh Han, Amy M. Ho, Hiroko Kikuchi and Jeremy Liu of The National Bitter Melon Council, Imin Yeh and Jennifer Yin.
