September 17 – November 30, 2022
Cambridge Art Galleries, Preston

Opening Reception and Artist Performance: Thursday September 29, 2022 at 5:00 PM, Cambridge Art Galleries, Preston.

eating the other is a group exhibition that elaborates on the relationships between food, race, and belonging through distinct artworks and public programming. The exhibition features four artists, offering various entry and exit points into timely conversations around food as a medium for eating together and cooking back.

Artists Molly JF Caldwell, Rajyashri Goody, Gabrielle Paré, and Alize Zorlutuna will share projects emerging out of diverse cultural sites of food production and consumption. Collages, installations, literatures, workshops, and foodstuff will be exhibited together to gesture to the critical potential of food in contemporary art.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a performance developed by Alize Zorlutuna, which extends the themes of the exhibition and questions forms of transactional knowledge within the artworld and the ways in which we give and receive knowledge about ourselves.
