Sample an array of fermented foods curated by Heidi Ratanvanich and Eileen Shumate.


How would the world change if everyone said “Hi” to a complete stranger? duplicate. until response., a group concept exhibition curated by Laris Kreslins attempts to answer this question.   Dozens of artists mailed artwork to unsuspecting strangers randomly selected from phone books and asked for feedback.
