(NEWARK, NJ) -- The Paul Robeson Galleries at Express Newark present Feast & Famine, an exploration of food as a social, political, and bodily phenomenon, from March 28 through December 14, 2019. The exhibitions considers food as a commodity; the relationship between food, death, sex, and the abject; food’s relationship to global economics and geo-politics; food and its likeness as a medium for artistic experimentation; the food chain and the environmental impacts of food production; and food justice.
