This exhibition catalog brings together a selection of artworks produced between 2020–2021 that address this time of viral and political turmoil through culinary response. In the wake of such depravity and loss, artists have activated culinary rituals as profound sites of exchange: countering isolation, affliction and scarcity with new networks of care, collaboration, and sustenance. Borrowing its title from M.F.K. Fisher’s 1942 book of essays and recipes arguing for pleasure and possibility in wartime, How to Cook a Wolf presents artworks that double as food stories and sources of solidarity during this unprecedented period.
