Jennifer Rubellwriter, vegetable butcher, and member of the gala-as-art movement — presented her latest food installation on Saturday night at Performa 11's "Red Party" fundraiser. Titled "Padded Cell," Rubell's work consisted of giant wooden box with walls made out of pink, sugary cotton candy, free for the eating. It was very pink, very sweet, and very delicious. Sarah Douglas has the full story on Artinfo. (Last year, Rubell staged the epic "Creation" dinner in the old Dia building to inaugurate Performa 09.)
