SHELF LIFE is a collaborative experience between artists, food makers, and guests as consumers. This show asks us: How do we determine what's relevant? What's sellable or marketable? What's fit for public consumption? Experience a collaborative investigation of how cultural associations of presentation and platform inform our assumptions about the value of food and art.Hosted at MANA Contemporary, where they have invited 8 artists to investigate this topic. Each artist will contribute a piece (or many) to represent what makes a meal through this lens. All these contributions will be highlighted at a silent auction throughout the meal as well as a reception that evening starting at 6pm with an interactive meal between artists and guest to follow.
