About the show:
Art on Toast is a surreal collection from SMUSH Gallery featuring canonical works of art superimposed on toast alongside local and contemporary visual art, also served on toast. This playful body of work provokes questions of how art is served, consumed, and digested; what forces domesticate and democratize art; and how, why, and if artists and presenters can use humor as a bridge to new audiences. Forty-one artists are represented across fifty-six pieces (of toast), sixteen of whom are local or regional artists. Concept and curation by Katelyn Halpern with assistance from Zhnai Davis.
