TASTING MENU, August 27, 2021 - December 5, 2021, engages all five senses to explore food as meaning, metaphor, and material. Following a grain of wheat from harvest, production, consumption, through to decomposition, the exhibition aims to contrast the ephemeral qualities of food with the enduring, sustaining, and cyclical.

While Tasting Menu contemplates food through an aesthetic lens, The Barns Art Center acknowledges that all people do not have access to safe, nutritious, and sufficient food. The Barns Art Center asks that visitors consider donating to artist Azikiwe Mohammed’s New Davonhaime Food Bank, a non-location-based food bank that serves a wide variety of communities and spaces through the redirecting of funds for the arts to funds for food. Please consider making a donation here.
