Join us on April 27th for the opening reception of two exhibitions about the food, tastes, smells, and feelings of home. These two exhibitions include over 100 illustrators, designers, creatives, bakers, and writers from around the globe - blending senses and sharing some of their favorite home cooked meals, family recipes, and memory. More details about the opening reception and events coming soon!
Foodies: Each artist is created a limited edition set of illustrative recipe cards based on their favorite dinner dishes! They celebrate recipes of their household, ingredients from their region, guilty pleasures, and comfort foods - it is all about food and the things we enjoy making. In addition to the postcards, the exhibition will display the framed original food illustrations and be celebrated through artist interviews, features, podcasts, and more.
Synesthesia, curated by Rafael Mayani, is about the blending of olfactory senses, visuals, and experience through the eyes of twelve international artists.
"Certain scents can transport us to a specific time and place, which will be completely personal to each individual. For me, the smell of cigarettes usually reminds me of the teacher’s room from my primary school, and a specific brand of car freshener reminds me of the house I lived in when I spent a year in high school as an exchange student in Canada. But my favorite memories are the ones that catch me off guard. Sometimes it takes a while to figure out what it is exactly, but it’s really incredible how a specific smell can evoke memories that we had completely forgotten about." - Rafael Mayani
