Hungry For Art: Food-Themed Gallery Show 'Palate' Opens Tonight
They say you eat first with your eyes. If that is so, then your eyes will be feasting at "Palate," a new food-themed art show opening tonight at the Scion Installation Space in Culver City.
Curated by Zio Fulcher, the show features a smorgasbord of intriguing art in all sorts of mediums expressing the profound and often complicated relationship between us and food in society. Fulcher, in her first official curatorial project, explains that while "food is simple...there is something deeper going on," as evidenced, for example, in the pastel-pink menace of Scott Hove's frosting and cherry decorated "Cakeland" with shocking embedded predatory mouths complete with fangs and tongues.
