NIGHT FISHING- AN IMMERSIVE ART & DINING EXPERIENCE WITH ARTIST IN RESIDENCE, ISIS HOCKENOS

THE MIDWAY PRESENTS, NIGHT FISHING, AN IMMERSIVE ART & DINING EXPERIENCE WITH ARTIST IN RESIDENCE, PAINTER ISIS HOCKENOS. ISIS WILL TRANSFORM ONE OF THE GALLERIES INTO A THREE DIMENSIONAL, LIFE SIZED PAINTING. ANYONE WHO TAKES ONE LOOK AT ISIS’ PAINTINGS WANTS TO CLIMB INSIDE, TO CRAWL THROUGH PEACOCK COLORED FOLIAGE, TO SMELL THE LANOLIN OF A FRESHLY SHEARED, CROWN-WEARING SHEEP, TO TASTE THE MEAT CUT LOVINGLY FROM THE SIDE OF A ROSE COLORED HOG. FANTASIZE NO LONGER- GUESTS WILL BE ATTENDING A DINNER PARTY INSIDE ONE OF HER RICHLY COLORFUL AND IMAGINATIVE PAINTINGS. ISIS’ VIBRANT WORK CONTAINS MANY REFERENCES TO HER EXPERIENCE IN FOOD AND FOOD PRODUCTION, PARTICULARLY THROUGH A FEMINIST LENS AND TO HER UPBRINGING IN WEST MARIN. MUCH OF THE FOOD WILL BE SOURCED FROM HER COMMUNITY OF OYSTER FARMERS, CHEESEMAKERS AND RANCHERS. REVEL IN BEING A CHARACTER IN AN ISIS HOCKENOS PAINTING, TITILLATE YOUR TASTE BUDS AND EXPECT A HEALTHY DASH OF SURREALIST DELIGHT.
