Mickalene Thomas, Marina Abramović, Leandro Erlich, and Rob Wynne Help Bake Cakes

Kreemart and American Patrons of the Tate recently asked some artists to bake cakes for a tasting event on November 3. Here's what happened:
Visitors arrived at Haunch of Venison late on Tuesday night to find Tom Wesselmann drawings — most showing naked, reclining women — cloaked in smoky, red light. The crowd of collectors, arts patrons, and gallerists had come for what had been billed as a tasting of cakes designed by artists, though such innocent pleasures appeared to be nowhere in sight.

Soon, young women, clad in nothing but tight, red shorts, knee-length sports socks, and red, patent leather stilettos marched out of a back room and into the main gallery main space, holding trays laden with slices of white-frosted cake. As Toni Basil’s classic 1980s dance track “Mickey” blared from speakers around the space, they halted at various points on the floor, struck confident poses in front of the crowd that had formed, and held the pastries close to their bodies.

The topless women used at this exhibition seems to be a bit seventies and sexist in my opinion!
