Culture Shock

By Lisa Barrow

Mo’ tasty

Just when you thought your cup already runneth over, Food MoMA: Pudding Things Places brings you completely real foodstuffs for purely visual feastings. Opening at The Tan (1415 Fourth Street SW) on Friday, Sept. 5, the show takes a cue from the Museum of Modern Art’s aesthetic but seeks to puncture any sense of pretention. Gallery owner Andrew Lyman and show co-organizer Adrian Toto provide the majority of the victual-based artworks, receiving a bit of help from creatives like Rachel Rankin, who has a performance piece planned, and Ryan Garcia, who intends to go big in his contribution. Food MoMA is the first in The Tan’s final series of exhibits; Lyman has plans to leave after 2014. For Toto, the exhibit has additional meaning. “This is my first artistic endeavor since being diagnosed with my meningioma,” he says, “and I sometimes feel as though I pulled some of the energy [I now have] out of this space.” It’s the beginning of the end of an eramake sure you’re one of the lucky people who will one day get to reminisce: “Remember how great The Tan was?” For more info, see thetan1415.com or the event page at on.fb.me/1nizzix and notethe popsicles start melting at 7:25pm sharp.
