Meat After Meat Joy

Meat After Meat Joy
June 21 through July 20, 2008
Opening Reception: Saturday, June 21, 6 - 9pm

Curated by Heide Hatry, Meat After Meat Joy investigates the paradoxical relationship meat has to the body. Meat combines flesh, skin, muscle, organs, blood — yet meat's only reference to the body is as a once-upon-a-time living biological thing. By putting these artists together, Meat After Meat Joy seeks to investigate the uncanny effect meat has as a medium for artist and viewer. This group exhibition brings together the work of 10 contemporary artists who use meat in their practice
