EAT: An Art Space About Food:Food Play
In conjunction with Humor in Craft, works by Dan Krueger are featured in EAT: An Art Space About Food. EAT, SCC's alternative exhibition space developed in a former café, features artists who present food, and its preparation, presentation and consumption, as a central element in their work. Working with found objects, such as toy trucks made in the USA during the 1950s and 60s, Krueger highlights similarities between kitchen appliances and agricultural equipment of the period; reassigning function through modification to create convenience for the table.
