    The name and inspiration for this exhibition comes from a 1971 Joseph Beuys lithograph series, which (as I recall) is essentially a very long, typed shopping list with a big butter stain on it. Per the gallery website, “By interweaving gastronomy with aesthetics, Beuys … provides an apt and timely commentary on art as a disposable and consumable economy. The assembled works develop Beuys’ original thematic through various avenues, expanding on the idea of food both literally and abstractly.”

    Food For Thought includes work by Nobuyoshi Araki, Joseph Beuys, Nayland Blake, Leidy Churchman, R. Crumb, Peter Fischli & David Weiss, Daphne Fitzpatrick, Corin Hewitt, Deva Graf, Dr. Lakra , Ed Ruscha and Jen Susman.
