Thanksgiving Meals for Modern Artists

If you are planning for a Thanksgiving fundraising event, or just want to change your dinners into an artistic fashion, check this article from Hyperallergic about some fancy Thanksgiving meals.


It requires a sense of grabbing each artist’s creating character to imitate their possible Thanksgiving plates. It is tricky that many people are not as familiar with these artists as this innovative artsist, Hannah Rothstein is, and therefore she has a great “correction” space she can attribute one piece of Piet Mondrian to any other artists in the same genre, and probably George Vantongerloo is a reasonable alternative. Although this exhibition seems simple and a bit childish, it is an interesting philanthropy activity to make arts more selfless, and also easy for people to join in, to share with friends and to do by themselves.

    this sounds like a really fun project! It reminded me of this series by an artist who was inspired by writers, rather than visual artists. The photographer depicted meals of famous characters from literature, like the gruel from Oliver Twist and a swiss cheese sandwich from The Catcher in the Rye!

    What a fun article! I like that this is a sort of food-appropriation of other artists’ styles. While this seems to be mostly playful, I do find it interesting when artists use food as a medium. Check out this series from Fischli Weiss, call the “The Sausage Series.” The second image (The Fashion Show) always makes me laugh – I love the sausage with the bacon tutu and peanut bandeau.

    This post reminds me that a mother always makes cartoon lunchbox for her child. The lunchbox is of course not real arts, however, the love and care behind it always touch me.
