The Bronx River Art Center (BRAC) is pleased to announce its next exhibition, The Food Design Show – Food as Molecular Gastronomy, Artifact & Biosensor, which will be on view Friday, January 9 through January 31, 2015 at BRAC’s temporary gallery space at 305 East 140th St. Bronx, N.Y. This is the first of an extensive two-year production of ten exhibitions that will run through 2016, collectively called Food Systems, Surroundings & Sensibilities.
The Food Design Show addresses the content, or “container,” of our sensory experiences and the act of food consumption through the eyes of artists. The exhibit seeks to break the boundaries of past limitations of how food is thought of (its culinary science) by addressing it through the lens of the visual arts and curatorial practice. Here, food is designed as molecular gastronomy, artifact and bio-sensory experience.
Curated by Karine Duteil, the exhibition will feature the work of: Master Chef Ferran Adrià (curated by Brett Littman, Executive Director of The Drawing Center), Emilie Baltz, The Cotard Syndicate (Dr. Siddharth Ramakrishnan, Stefani Bardin, Dr. Toby Heys + engineer Eric Rosenthal), and visual artist Maggie Nelson.
