Food is intertwined in all aspects of New Orleans life, including preservation and art. Foodways, an exhibition created by New Orleans online art magazine and collective Pelican Bomb, (www.pelicanbomb.com), uses food to examine preservation and maintenance of local and regional cultures in an increasingly homogenized world.
Works including photography, sculp-ture and video show how growing, preparing and sharing food can be a means of maintaining and passing on traditions. Participating artists include Rush Jagoe, Jenny LeBlanc, Michi Meko, Clare Crespo, Denny Culbert and others.
The exhibition coincides with Prospect.3 (www.prospectneworleans.org) and is part of the international art biennial's P.3+ satellite program. It will be the first event hosted in the New Orleans Culinary and Hospitality Institute (725 Howard Ave.), which is slated to open in 2016. Throughout its run, the exhibition will host culinary events and lectures. The exhibition's regular hours are 11 a.m.- 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday, through Jan. 25, 2015.
