ESMoA Experience #39: EAT

February 28 – May 18, 2019

The El Segundo Museum of Art presents Experience #39: EAT February 28 through May 18.

Curated by Dr. Bernhard Zuenkeler with curatorial assistance by Holly M. Crawford, EAT is a group show examining the creative power of food and eating across place and time. Over the centuries eating has been a tremendous accelerator of driving imagination and cooperation. Our bodies turn food into energy so that we may survive, thrive, and create.

One of the fundamental actions of our lives. We sleep. We breathe. We eat. We love. Without eating nothing moves. But do we pay enough attention about what we eat, how we eat and when we eat? Do we care about preparation of our food, our celebration of eating together? Over the centuries, eating has been a tremendous accelerator of driving imagination and cooperation. Eating has been a driving force for the arts and vice versa. Cooking is certainly a form of art. The preservation of food, the development of new forms of food is a creative task.
