I do not think that using real food for “art” is actually art. I can see using paintings of food or photographs of food, but using actual food for art wouldn’t be something I would consider art. There are people starving in the world and people who use food to make art is not helping. If the food is eaten it would be art for a while but then the artwork aspect of it will be gone. I think these exhibits where people walk around and eat things, should not be considered art exhibits but be called “feasts”.
