THIS EVENT HAS ENDED
Food has been used as a physical medium for the creation of art throughout history; from the use of egg as a binder in tempera paint to Ed Ruscha's Chocolate Room, first presented at the Venice Biennale in the 1970s.

In the world of fine jewelry, when a particularly large gemstone is worn, phrases like, 'that is so beautiful, I could eat it up' are often used. There is a great similarity in discussing food and art as the adjectives used to describe them are easily interchangeable: heavenly, enticing, disgusting, beautiful, tender, dazzling, dull, fragile, weak, strong, elegant, harsh, and delicious. The language of one is the language of the other.

This exhibit seeks to challenge artists to work outside their norm or comfort zone in the creation of jewelry, couture, or bodily adornment that utilizes actual food. Every living person has an intimate relationship to the food we eat; it is tactile and often sexy. It entices and compels. For some, it is a love/hate relationship and as such, food that has been transformed into wearables becomes that much more compelling.
