Meat After Meat Joy, curated by Heide Hatry at Daneyal Mahmood Gallery, New York, brings together the work of contemporary artists who use meat in their work.
On display are works by Sheffy Bleier, Lauren Bockow, Adam Brandejs, Tania Bruguera, Nezaket Ekici, Anthony Fisher, Betty Hirst, Zang Huan, Tamara Kostianovsky, Simone Rachell, David Raymond, Dieter Roth, Carolee Schneemann, Stephen Shanabrook, Jana Sterbak, Jenny Walton and Pinar Yolacan.
Curator Heide Hatry has long worked with skin and meat in her own art. She compiled a huge file of other artists working with the same media. “When I became aware of a couple Boston-area artists who had been creating related work, the painters Anthony Fisher and David Raymond, I drew upon my knowledge to create a collateral group show to amplify the concept and draw attention to the scope of its possibilities.” (Heide Hatry). The title of the show refers to Carolee Schneeman’s Meat Joy performance, one of the seminal works of sixties happening and performance art.
