Title

Note on Food

Subject

A note on food and leisure culture.

Description

This note from LeRoy Neiman looks at the position of food in leisure culture. The document itself is comprised of a variety of fragmented images from elite settings (e.g. “your food is being plated as hurried to the table”, “Well healed older men of financial position”, “cosmopolitan opulence”, and “velvet rope”), which tacitly point to both the artist’s process of seeing as well as acknowledgement of said images in a larger social frame. Overall, the document is then testament not only to Neiman’s method but also his persistent sociological interests.
