Nancy Lupo presents OLD ZOO FOOD a dinner, a picnic, an attempt to think through the relationship between a rind and a nutritional yeast surface. Bucatini will be served straight from a wheel of parmigiano-reggiano and lemons will be made sweet.
The evening includes a performance of Ape Cave Stratum Feeding by Jules Gimbrone.
Nancy Lupo is a Los Angeles based artist working primarily in sculpture. Her work was recently featured in MoMA PS1's Taster's Choice curated by Christopher Lew. Lupo's work has also been shown at Laurel Gitlen, Wallspace, CLEARING, Michael Thibault, Freedman Fitzpatrick, Soloway and Cleopatras. Reviews of her work can be seen in ARTFORUM and Kaleidoscope.
Starting in May 2014, LA><ART launches a series of performances to be curated by Summer Guthery, LA><ART’s Curator of Performance and Special Projects. Alongside exhibitions and programming, the performance series is meant to highlight the critical role of live performance in the visual arts throughout history. As performance exists in parallel to artistic practice, it is key to understanding notions of artistic refusal, artistic intelligence and overall intention. This performance series then in its own modest way intends to suggest this history and incite curiosity by revealing the layers of an artists practice. Performances will take place at LA><ART’s gallery and other venues around the city and includes local, national and international artists working in literature, dance, theater, film and in-between.
