Meat After Meat Joy is a group exhibition of contemporary artists who use meat in their work, currently running at the Daneyal Mahmood Gallery in New York City. Curated by Heide Hatry, the show’s title refers Carolee Schneemann’s performance/happening Meat Joy (1964, embedded below), itself projected in the gallery. The show features sculpture, photography, painting, and video pieces “in order to investigate the paradoxical relationship meat has to the body.” - LinkHere's a piece called Animatronic Flesh Shoe, made by Adam Brandejs. It's stitched together with pieces of rubber, latex and the artist's own skin and controlled by an MP3 player, which makes it vibrate, sometimes scaring the crap out of the visitors.
