Samek Art Gallery artists event: ‘Excito Excito: A Veritable Feast’



Traditionally, Thanksgiving is the quintessential time to indulge in a delicious feast. Every year, the preparation of the Thanksgiving meal eases with the addition of a newly prepackaged dish for public consumption: cranberry sauce is reduced to gelatinous form and extracted from a can; yams are canned only to be topped with a product made from entirely artificial ingredients and flavors (i.e., marshmallows); and stuffing comes neatly packaged in a box with flavor already in tow.

The Thanksgiving edition of “Excito! Excito! invites the viewer to indulge in a meal that offers the past, present, and foreseeable future of this iconic meal. The feasible future of American food is food distilled into pure flavor that can be consumed with the least amount of preparation.

This presentation prompts the viewer to consider the widespread industrial practice of substituting natural foods for artificial ingredients and additives.
