Press Release

On view at William Paterson University Galleries from November 1 – December 13, 2017, the exhibition Breaking Bread: Artists Explore Food Practices features painting, sculpture, photography, installation, and performances that examine our multifaceted relationship to food. While eating is generally a mundane daily routine, this exhibition considers how we find our food, who we consume it with, and what meaning is created through these experiences.
