FOOD SEX ART | The Starving Artists’ Cookbook Archive 1986-1991
Arthur Fournier Fine & Rare is proud to present FOOD SEX ART | The Starving Artists’ Cookbook Archive 1986-1991, a collection of video art and original works on paper gathered by artists Paul Lamarre and Melissa Wolf (EIDIA House) during the late 1980s to document the culinary practices of creative communities in New York City’s East Village and beyond. The exhibition will take place during Printed Matter’s New York Art Book Fair, September 21–24, 2017, at MoMA PS1. Join us for a special event in the Classroom at 3 pm on Sunday the 24th featuring Anthony Haden Guest, Donald Goddard, Betty Tompkins, Bill Mutter, David Sandlin, Bonnie Sherk and Maynard Monrow discussing the role that cooking and dining with friends, lovers and collaborators has played in their creative lives.
Over the project’s five year span, Lamarre and Wolf visited more than 150 artists in their kitchens and studios, capturing Peter Beard, Tony Bevan, Louise Bourgeois, John Cage, Papo Colo, Tony Conrad, Quentin Crisp, Judy Glantzman, Al Hansen, Shigeko Kubota, Gracie Mansion, Jonas Mekas, Marilyn Minter, Alan W. Moore, Arleen Schloss, Willoughby Sharp, Bonnie Sherk, Carolee Schneemann, Sur Rodney (Sur), Betty Tompkins, Endre Tót, William Wegman, Lawrence Weiner, Hannah Wilke, Martha Wilson and others cooking and philosophizing about the alchemical union between art and life that activates when friends and lovers come to dine.
Nearly ten hours in length, the monumental work was first screened at Anthology Film Archives in 1989 and released as a six-volume video series. That same year, EIDIA House also published its limited-edition Starving Artists’ Cookbook, emblazoned with the words ‘food sex art’ overlaying an original cover design by Lamarre showing Komar & Melamid’s “Pravda Burger” in an outstretched palm.
This project for the NY Art Book Fair will mark the first time that The Starving Artists’ Cookbook Archive has been comprehensively exhibited. The show includes a selection of twenty-five original artworks, as well as photographs, ephemera, handwritten recipes and manuscript correspondence with the contributors. Two classic cart-mounted Sony CRT video monitors will display continuous loops from the Starving Artists’ Cookbook “Highlights Tape.” In the adjacent room, Fournier will offer a selection of rare works from the canon of related culinary serials, prints, and books, including a limited number of first-edition copies of the original Starving Artists’ Cookbook.
Sunday, Sept. 243-4 PM in MoMA PS1 rm. S205
Paul Lamarre & Melissa Wolf in conversation with Anthony Haden Guest, Donald Goddard, Betty Tompkins, Bill Mutter, David Sandlin, Bonnie Sherk and Maynard Monrow.

En su muestra anterior Free Lunch de 2011, el artista estadounidense Jay Batlle (Nueva York, 1976) ofreció una reflexión sobre las tendencias de la comida gourmet y los hábitos foodies como su fuente de inspiración, pero también como una forma de crítica social. La actual exposición continúa en la misma línea como fruto de sus indagaciones en restaurantes, principalmente en los Estados Unidos, Francia y el Reino Unido. Batlle, examina a través de medios como la pintura, el dibujo, la escultura y la performance, el abismo que se abre entre la buena vida, el éxito, la fortuna, y la realidad. Plasma sus experiencias en una serie de pinturas y dibujos realizados sobre menús y artículos de papelería recolectados en los establecimientos. Así, articula un cuerpo de obras titulado Restaurant Stationery que constituyen su serie más significativa hasta la fecha. La serie documenta los hábitos alimentarios peripatéticos del artista, el surgimiento de la comida como símbolo del consumo nómada y turístico en la última década.
