& Eat it Too!

  • The Condo Association 2700 West North Avenue Chicago, IL, 60647 United States (map)

& Eat It Too! is a group exhibition featuring artists that utilize the visual language of cake and cake decorating to address difficult subjects, exposing raw personal and political narratives. Some of the artists consider cake as a material that can overcome boundaries and open up conversations in a way that draws you in with its sweetness and slowly reveals its layered meaning. Others use playful forms and loaded symbolism to recall memories or dismantle ideas and norms embedded in our society, leveraging a cake’s ability to level the playing field. The exhibition will be on view at the Condo Association June 8-July 7, 2018.
