March 9 – 13: Makaili Taylor: Visual Feast

According to Georgia Southern’s Event Calender, “Makaili Taylor’s MFA thesis exhibition, ‘Visual Feast,’ explores how cultural approaches to food have shifted in recent decades, from a source of sustenance and shared experience with one’s family, to a fetishization of indulgence and image. Subjecting photorealistic replicas of desserts and treats to various distortions, and amplifying their portion sizes to the point of absurdity, Taylor presents a visual feast suitable for an era when we are as likely to Instagram our dessert as we are to actually eat and enjoy it.”

There will be a reception on March 13 from 5 to 7 PM.

Location: Statesboro Center for Art and Theater, University Gallery 
Time: 9 AM – 5 PM
