Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present Potluck, a group exhibition curated by Dasha Matsuura. Inspired by community and connections created around food, this dynamic group show brings together artists working in ceramics, drawing, painting and beyond for a delicious exploration in our relationships with food.
Featuring 28 artists from the San Francisco Bay Area, nationally and internationally, the show includes a diverse range of experiences culturally, emotionally and conceptually. Drawing inspiration from the community created around gathering for a meal and the preparation of food, each artist brings unique memories and histories embedded in what we eat. Each piece offers the viewer a personal perspective of food, ranging from favorite dishes and places, intimate domestic scenes, celebratory occasions and nostalgic recollections.
Artists’ contributions to the eclectic Potluck include Katie Kimmel’s playful ceramic seafood platter appetizers, a variety of bejeweled beverages by Sam Keller, traditional dish ware painted with clay on canvas by Liz Hernandez, Anna Valdez’s summer beer series painted on ceramic slabs, a charcuterie board rendered in detailed spray paint stencils by Casey Gray, a corn offering by Hilda Palafox and a sweet and saucy milkshake by Petites Luxures.
