& Eat it, Too! –June 8th –July 7th
Opening Reception: Friday June 8th from 6:00-10:00 p.m.
THE CONDO ASSOCIATION ● 2700 W. NORTH AVENUE, CHICAGO, IL
Join us for an opening reception on Friday, June 8th from 6:00-10:00 p.m. for & Eat It, Too! at The Condo Association. Cake will be served.
& Eat It, Too! is a group exhibition featuring artists that utilize the visual language of cake and cake decorating to address difficult subjects, exposing raw personal and political narratives. Some of the artists consider cake as a material that can overcome boundaries and open up conversations in a way that draws you in with its sweetness and slowly reveals its layered meaning. Others use playful forms and loaded symbolism to recall memories or dismantle ideas and norms embedded in our society, leveraging a cake’s ability to level the playing field.
Featuring works by:
Cake Butt Collective
Joshua Michael Jenkins
And featuring cake from ‘Just a Tad’
