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 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.
