Contemporary art and food are frequently paired together in artist projects and exhibitions in order to explore the sensorial to the political. This panel features individuals working at the intersection of art and food who will discuss why it is repeatedly mined by artists and art institutions, and what it means for the public to experience this topic in new ways within cultural spaces.

This program is part of the upcoming CURRENT:LA FOOD public art triennial on view from October 5-November 3, 2019. ICA LA is the lead curatorial team for this city-wide program. CURRENT:LA FOOD is funded by the Department of Cultural Affairs, City of Los Angeles.
