3D Food Printing With Keary Rosen
March 21 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Main Gallery, Express Newark
54 Halsey Street, 3rd Floor, Newark, NJ 07102
Join Keary Rosen, chefs Peter Wojtkunski and Tie Mei of Creative Table NY on the final day of the exhibition Feast and Famine as they experiment with food and form, 3D printing new edible creations live in the Main Gallery.
This program is associated with the exhibition, Feast & Famine, which explores food as a social, political, and bodily phenomenon. The exhibition considers food as a commodity; the relationship between food, death, sex, and the abject; food’s relationship to global economics and geopolitics; food and its likeness as a medium for artistic experimentation; the food chain and the environmental impacts of food production; and food justice. Feast & Famine gathers together works in a variety of media from artists and artist collectives working nationally and internationally, at different stages in their career.
Keary Rosen is an interdisciplinary artist working in drawing, photography, video, performance and kinetic sculpture. His work has been exhibited widely in numerous venues both nationally and internationally including: The Philadelphia ICA, The RISD Museum, The Carnegie Museum of Art, The Museum of Contemporary Native Arts in Santa Fe, The Annmarie Sculpture Garden, Art Basel Miami, The Basement Project Space in Ireland, The Nunnery Gallery in London, MMX Open Art Venue in Berlin, The 15 Minutes Gallery in Pittsburgh, Rush Gallery in New York City. He has executed performance works at sites in Philadelphia, New Jersey and New York, including at the Whitney Museum of American Art. Keary received his BFA from The Maine College of Art and his MFA from Rutgers University’s Mason Gross School of the Arts.
Peter Wojtkunski is three generations deep in the culinary arts. He grew up in Poland, near the Baltic sea, where farm-to-table was the way of life. Peter was influenced by his godmother, the head chef of the iconic restaurant Maxim and by his grandfather, a lifelong fish monger. He came to the U.S. to hone his skills in fine dining, pastry and event design. Under the training of top Michelin-starred chefs, Peter developed his own style of sweet and savory delicacies. He developed his skills in visual merchandising and presented artistic edibles for discriminating taste-buds.
As a native New Yorker, Tie Mei developed a sophisticated palate at a very young age. Since she trained with some of the top chefs in the city, Tie Mei can be found testing and perfecting recipes with a high level of scrutiny. At Creative Table NY, Tie Mei brings a miniaturized version of fine dining to food connoisseurs.
