Doughnut art collaborations sought

Apr 10, 2018

Rockland — Steel House member Alexis Iammarino has put out a call for entries to chef-and-artist teams to create doughnut-inspired foods for a juried tasting on National Doughnut Day, celebrated every year on the first Friday in June.

For more information and to request proposal guidelines, send mail to hole.history.show@gmail.com. Entries are due Friday, April 27.

The call is part of a 2018 Kindling Fund award project. Artist Iammarino and her Steel House Projects co-director and designer Maeve will design, publish and print a catalog from last year’ exhibition, curated by Iammarino, “Hole History Show: Origins of the American-style Donut,” a collection of art, performance and writing that responded to a claim that the hole-in-the-doughnut was singularly invented by a 19th-century sea captain from Rockport.

The catalog aims to become a document of public history to be gifted to regional libraries and historical societies. At the publication’s launch, there will be an interdisciplinary event pairing chefs and artists to invent doughnut-inspired foods for the public. The Kindling Fund is administered by SPACE Gallery as part of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Arts Regional Regranting Program.
