Art and Food with Christine Kirouac

  • Thursday, February 25, 2016
  • 6:30pm – 8:00pm
  • The Royal Canadian Legion, 227 McDermot Ave.

In her text “Eating Your Words”, Yael Raviv examines the slippage between food as artistic medium and food as culinary medium, through artists who use food in performance. In contemporary culture, food, art and consumption have a conceptual and material relationship that merit debate and conversation.
