Do Food and Art Go Together?

April 17, 2008

Tomorrow is the last day of the Umami: Food and Art Festival. If you don’t know, Umami is defined as the fifth taste after salty, sweet, bitter, and sour. It’s a Japanese term that refers to foods that are “savory” or “meaty” tasting. Tonight and tomorrow is the Ensemble 2009: Cookies performance—”A performance based around words derived from the linguistic milieu of food and cooking and begin with the letters that make up the term PERFORMANCE.” Whoa. I went to NYU and had to sit through things like this every day, so I’ve had my fill, thank you very much. I’d rather eat my food than watch performance art about it.
