Gluttony is the new status quo. Our appetite for food, power, wealth, sex, new experiences, and information is seemingly insatiable and poses increasingly greater risks to the welfare of our planet and its inhabitants. This juried exhibition featured work by 42 artists from the US and abroad that explores our ravenous craving for excess and/or the consequences of indulging our endless desire for more.
