Here’s an art show that’s sure to cause a gut reaction.
Artists, musicians, and filmmakers will rub elbows — and break bread — with gourmands at the fifth annual “Last Supper,” a food-focused multimedia art show at 3rd Ward in Bushwick on Saturday.
The festival hopes to open visitors’ minds and fill their stomachs with a diverse array of artworks, music, films, and performances addressing food policy concepts of “means” and “consumption.”
Some, though not all of the art will be edible, and highlights will include culinary demonstrations by Boerum Hill chef Simon Lange of Apartment 138, and a comestible exploration of low-income housing by artists Eve Biddle and Bowie Zunino titled “Edible Ghetto” that features a miniature public housing project made out of gingerbread.
Tickets are $15, but art and food lovers who donate three cans of grub can get in for $10 — a promotion that echoes the mission of the “Last Supper,” according to organizer Coralina Meyer.
“Hunger is a direct representation of consumption,” she said.
The Last Supper at 3rd Ward [195 Morgan Ave. between Stagg and Meadow streets in Bushwick, (718) 715-4961], Sept. 26, 6 pm to midnight. Tickets are $15 ($10 with three canned goods). For information, visit www.3rdwardbrooklyn.org.
