In these newly-politicized times, we have been overwhelmed by a barrage of devastating attacks on societal norms, resulting in feelings of helplessness and doom. But we understand this as an opportunity to connect and to celebrate our fleeting notions of democracy. What better way than to spend possibly our last moments returning to more primal forms of solace: food and music?
Don’t Panic exists somewhere among a dinner party, a formal gallery exhibition, and an end-times blowout, manifested in two parts: First is Diana Ho’s Live Vanitas, a work that serves as a living record of time through food a living participatory installation inspired by 16th and 17th century Dutch still life paintings. Second is Irwin Todd’s sculptural sound system, KALLAX, that will synthesize found audio throughout the evening, built from a discarded bookshelf – part speaker system and part library. Flowers by ExtraFloral and featuring the culinary stylings of Trevor Davis.
