A new five-part series explores how artists use the five senses in their practice. Body sensations and how we react to them define our lived experiences. Contemporary artists know this to be true and use a variety of mediums to explore the breadth of this reality, either alone or with their audience’s participation.
In the third session, savor the flavor of contemporary art. Sour, salty, sweet are just a few of the adjectives to describe the work of artists like Song Dong, Pedro Reyes and Aki Sasamoto. Learn how these artists and others engage the gustatory system to question complicated societal issues like urban development, global warming, and consumption habits.
