The MSC Visual Arts Committee announces the opening of its newest exhibit titled, Questionable Foods on display in the Reynolds Gallery until February 25, 2023.
Assessing our consumption culture requires an escape from the constant stream of advertising we digest daily. Questionable Foods provides a fresh perspective and starts the conversation on America’s relationship with food and the food industry.
Reflective both in nature and in form, the glass sculptures of Kathleen Elliot reimagine the way we look at food and its packaging. The bright colors, text, and materials used in her collage works lend themselves to intriguing artwork due to their intended appeal to buyers. Taken out of the grocery store context, these snacks, wrappers and boxes begin to transform before our eyes.
Kathleen Elliot’s ability to adapt everyday food into artistic sculptures makes her artwork immersive and unique. Brightly colored food packages are given voices of their own and allowed to interact in new ways with us the customers who regularly purchase such products.
In Questionable Foods, Kathleen Elliot makes use of glass to create sculptures but also produces collage pieces that work together to share the message of Questionable Foods. This exhibit will have visitors rethinking their role as consumers and contemplating the effect of food on American society. Any questions regarding the exhibit may be directed to the email email@example.com or phone number 979-458-8714.
Selected artworks will be on display in the James R. Reynolds Gallery in the Texas A&M Memorial Student Center until February 25, 2023. Admission is free.
