FRESH TALK: The Aesthetics of Appetite
The female body and its powerful capabilities are consistently likened to forces of nature, elements of the earth and even certain foods. Artists and other special guests discuss the fetishization and mystification of the female body and how behaviors and relationships associated with food play a role in the complex fluidity between gluttony and carnal desire. Free, $10 donation suggested. Reserve online. Stream live here or on Facebook.
