Is Food Art?

Wollman Hall, Eugene Lang College
General Public 

This panel, organized by the Food Studies Program at The New School for Public Engagement in collaboration with SoFAB Center for Food Law, Policy & Culture and New York University, will address the complex relationships between food and art.

The age-old questions of what qualifies as art and who qualifies as an artist are being framed in a new way and provocatively debated by panelists from various disciplines and professions, from artists to chefs and food producers. The panel is part of the national series CULINARIA Query, produced under the aegis of Culinaria, a scholarly monograph series published by the SoFAB Center for Food Law, Policy & Culture, in partnership with the Tulane University Law School.

Speakers include Fabio Parasecoli, Professor and Coordinator of the Food Studies Program at The New School; visual artist and craft brewer Lauren Carter; food photographer Nino Andonis; Le Bernardin pastry chef Michael Laiskonis; and Umami Food & Art festival director Yael Raviv. Liz Williams, President and Director of the Southern Food and Beverage Museum moderates.
