2 Exhibitions from Faculty, Marina Zurkow

I have two upcoming exhibitions, if you are in New York or Boston.
Both shows address petrochemicals – input, output, time, and environment.

In addition I’m presenting a “petrochemical tasting” in March in Boston, in collaboration with Michael Connor, Chef Lauryn Tyrell and Boston University.

Best,

Marina

Outside the Work: A Tasting of
Hydrocarbons and Geological Time

Boston University

Friday, March 22, 6:30pm
The French phrase hors d’ouevre literally means “outside of the work,” that is, outside the design of the meal. Petrochemicals infuse our foods – high and low, exotic and mundane, from start to finish; and while these byproducts of petroleum lie outside our designs on eating, they are intimately entangled with the foods we produce, transport and consume.

Conceived and presented by Marina Zurkow, Michael Connor, and chef Lauryn Tyrell, this tasting event will bring the hydrocarbon into play with a multi-course evening of small plates and drinks, bringing together geological time with human time, food with fossil fuels, and earthly processes with techniques of the kitchen. Presented in collaboration with Gastronomy at BU.

Tickets $40. Reservations required. Please RSVP to lcooney@bu.edu by March 1st.
