SLICK Conference: When Art Gets Its Appetite

Sarah Moroz writing for VINGT ParisImg_thiebaud_frostedfractions_lg

Art is a feast for the eyes, as they say. A SLICK conference this Saturday (October 24) at 14h is suggesting that feasting your the eyes is but step one of art's sensual experience. And thus there is Le Goût de l’Art: Slick Dessert, a conference that merges the two wonders of the world, namely food and art. A bevy of panelists will weigh in on the nuances and delights of taste, both in terms of "aesthetic taste" and "taste-bud taste". Those panelists include: Philippe Mayaux, a plasticien who's received the prix Marcel Duchamp and created dîners-événements with chef Pierre Gagnaire; Jean-Marie Hiblot, of the Plaza Athénée, who works amongst 25 pâtissiers under Christophe Michalak; Marc Brétillot, a culinary designer who teaches at l’Ecole Supérieure d’Art et de Design de Reims, where he’s created his very own culinary design research atelier; Hélène Samuel, of the Delicabar and the Café Salle Pleyel; as well as restaurateur Fabrice Lextrait. Art and food consultant (...how do you get that job??) Frédéric Adida will moderate the event. You might want to get there early; if anyone else in this city is half as gourmand as we are, it could be quite a crowd.

Later in the day, at 19h: a screening of The Last Supper (1972). Made by Warholian protégé Ultra Violet, it was, aptly enough, filmed at NYC performance art space The Kitchen. Ultra Violet herself will be in attendance, and the screening will be followed by a conversation between the artist and critic/art historian Isabelle de Maison Rouge.

Bon Appétit!
