An online discussion regarding Arden Surdam’s new monograph publication, Glut.
“Words & Pictures is pleased to present a virtual discussion between artist Arden Surdam and gallerist Kendra Jayne Patrick on the topic of her new monograph, Glut. Glut is Surdam’s first publication with Small Editions featuring exhibited and never-before-seen photographs from 2018-2020. The monograph extends the artist’s visual analysis and research on taste, specifically taste-based hierarchies arising from 18th and 19th century European still life painting. Expanding on French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu’s writing on cultural capital, variants of dominant taste, and art appropriation, Surdam’s work challenges the pathologization of non-Western food representations and presumptions surrounding class and sophistication.
