Curated by Emily Martin.
With Food in Mind looks at artists’ use of food as subject matter or medium in book arts, print, and digital media. The exhibition is inspired by the current food climate (i.e. how food is cultivated, distributed, consumed, and discussed today) and includes over 40 works that span the last twenty years.

“The table isn’t the only place to look for food: It’s on television, the Internet, and in photographs and books. Nicole J. Caruth, a Brooklyn-based curator with a strong culinary interest, organized this exhibition examining the use of edible subject matter in art, literature and digital media.”
