Hashimoto Contemporary LA is Throwing a "Potluck"
Food has always played a central role in fine art, but perhaps most recently, preparing and executing a menu has become, more and more, a fine art form itself. Hashimoto Contemporary's Dasha Matsuura is looking at food and drink as a focus in a group of emerging artists, in a exhibition titled Potluck.
What Potluck speaks to is the uinversality of food and cooking, both as a personal practice and family tradition. We tell stories through food and sharing a meal, just as good art can tell a story. As Dasha notes of the show, "Ranging from intimate and charged moments to elaborate tablescapes—participating artists in this exhibition offer a piece of their cultures, memories, or social commentary."
