Event description

Description

As part of the 10th anniversary of Summer Streets, NYC DOT Art has commissioned Daily tous les jours and Nico Fonseca to reproduce their pop-up installation entitled, Food Sessions at the Astor Place Rest Stop. Food Sessions is a participatory artwork using sound, food, and cell phones to create an experience that feels like a silent disco for your tongue. This experience is both collective and personal; it stages a series of exercises that challenge and enrich participants' relationships with the food they consume and the people they share it with. It is a guided meditation on food and a shared journey in the form of a meal. Here, food becomes more than taste. It is culture, memories, body and identity. Together, participants explore ways to eat with all their senses, opening up their imagination, while calling upon their memories, and sharing their culture. Bring your stories and your appetite. You will eat with your ears and your heart. Special thanks to Chef John Mooney, Citi, noosa, Nature’s Path and Honest Tea for making this exhibition possible.
