Drawing upon the collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family Foundation, this exhibition will explore food as a community-builder, access to food, and how we can eat in a shifting climate across over a hundred works from thirty-seven different artists, brought together to break bread over a shared matter.

On view there will be a range of ceramics, sculptures, drawings, and paintings, including Andy Warhol’s ubiquitous Banana, Roy Lichtenstein’s Bull Profile Series, and Jenny Holzer’s Survival Series. Additionally, other artists presented are David Hockney, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, and Ed Ruscha; as well as contemporary artists like Enrique Chagoya, Alison Saar, Lorna Simpson, and Rachel Whiteread.

The Art of Food finds a special home in the Hamptons. As a commentary on shifting foodways, the exhibit will speak to the lost agricultural past of Long Island’s East End as well as the emergence of the Hamptons’ celebrated wineries. The James Beard Foundation will present an itinerary of culinary events in tandem with the exhibit, working with local chefs and producers to bring the artworks alive.
