Here are all the SuperVegan blog posts categorized under Art & Craft. XML

  1. I thought I was making a big effort because I’m baking the Triple Threat Chocolate “Cheese” Cake from My Sweet Vegan for my cousin’s birthday (review TK). Well, when it comes to cake, “effort” has just been redefined.

    Someone on the Post Punk Kitchen message boards wanted to do something special for her boyfriend, who’s a huge David Lynch fan, so she put it out to the forum: How should I decorate his vegan birthday cake? How about a Blue Velvet cake with severed ear on top? Van Gogh would be so proud.

    Meanwhile, my birthday’s next week, and I don’t expect anything remotely as artistic. Anyway, what would it look like given that one of my all-time favorite movies is Harold and Maude? Have you ever baked anything this creative? We’d love to see pictures!

  2. First a dog was starved to death in a gallery in Costa Rica. Now the San Francisco Art Institute is displaying “Don’t Trust Me,” a video installation in which six animals are shown being bludgeoned to death with a sledgehammer by the “artist.”

    What else is there to say? In Defense of Animals has created a petition asking the SFAI to remove the exhibit and to refrain from featuring such horrific acts of cruelty in the future. Sign it!

    UPDATE: The SFAI has temporarily suspended the exhibit, and it’s holding a public meeting on Monday. Be there and speak your piece, if you can.
    What: Public forum to discuss art and ethics and whether killing animals can ever be considered art
    When: Monday, March 31 at noon
    Where: San Francisco Art Institute Main Campus (in the lecture hall), 800 Chestnut Street

  3. I was all excited about this test lab bunny doll, but it's made of wool and alpaca. Boo!

    An exhibit called Enantiomorphic Chamber opened Friday at the NURTUREart Gallery in Williamsburg. I can’t even begin to explain the theme, but it has something to do with humans’ “two-eyed nature” and the metaphysical. What I do know is that it features a fantastic vegan photographer, Julie McConnell.

    A friend turned me on to Julie’s work last year, and I saw her Animals in Mind show at the Ceres Gallery in Chelsea. Using human hair and silhouettes of combined animal bodies, Julie explores the interspecies bond and the way we separate ourselves from animals in order to exploit them. Her work is disturbing, but in a good way. And I love that an entire page of her website is dedicated to vegan links.

    There are a bunch of other artists in the show, but I don’t know much about contemporary art, so I have no idea if they’re any good. But it’s worth the trip just to see Julie’s stuff. And if you want to find out what an enantiomorphic chamber is, the curators are giving a talk on Sun., March 9. Call 718-782-7755 for details.

    Where: NURTUREArt Gallery, 910 Grand St., Brooklyn
    When: Through March 23; Fri., Sat. & Sun. from noon to 6 and by appointment
    How: Take the L to Grand St. On Grand, walk a block east of Bushwick Ave. (past a school); the gallery is right past the traffic light at Waterbury St.
