Culinary Art: Artists and Curators Will Cook for You for a Cause
This Saturday, November 10, East of Borneo will be hosting a culinary event where artists, writers, and curators will step out of their comfort zone, presenting a gallery of edible work rather than the traditional mediums they craft with. The event, called "Eats of Borneo," will be hosted at the Blum and Poe Gallery on La Cienega from 6-11 p.m., and will raise money for the online magazine, which curates editorial content on contemporary art and its history considered from a Los Angeles perspective. Ticketsare $35 in advance and $40 at the door, and include food and one drink voucher. Seoul Sausage will also be at Eats doling out bangers and their famous balls. And in case that's not enough, we'll be there too, along with Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold, so so should you. Here's a list of the participating artists-cum-foodcrafters and their wares:
