Opening: “Food Nostalgia” at Radiator Gallery
A group exhibition of paintings, sculptures, photographs, videos and installations, this delightful exhibition features five emerging artists and a collaborative duo that have a fascination with food. Organized by independent curator Amanda McDonald Crowley (the director of Eyebeam from 2005 to 2011), the show includes Cey Adams ironic portrait of the smiling black chef from the packaging for Cream of Wheat, Emilie Baltz’ yummy-looking color photos of junk food and Kira Nam Greene’s luscious watercolors of open cans of Chef Boyardee and packages of Ding Dongs and Ring Dings, which are realistically rendered over brightly patterned fields.
Radiator Gallery, 10-61 Jackson Avenue, Long Island City, Queens 6-9 p.m.
