Sugar and the Natural World: Seduction and Destruction
The curators of Like Sugar in conversation with invited guests.
Like Sugar, which runs from February 9 through June 9, 2019, and explores the problematic and the joyful aspects of sugar, complicating our view of how this multi-layered substance affects us.
Visitors will encounter mid-century advertisements for candy, sugar and soda; tools used in the cutting and processing of sugar cane; historical stereoscopic images of workers in sugar-cane fields; and artwork by contemporary artists such as Maria Magdalene Campos-Pons, Will Cotton, Tim Davis, Julia Jacquette, Beatriz Milhazes, Vik Muniz, Zineb Sedira, Laurie Simmons, Kara Walker and others. The exhibition will raise questions and provide a space for dialogue about sugar in our lives.
