If you have a spare hour and 17 minutes I recommend watching this chat that took place between artist Sanford Biggers and chef Marcus Samuelsson at the Hammer last summer. I'll let the museum do the formal introductions:
Sanford Biggers is an installation, video, and performance artist whose work has been exhibited worldwide. Biggers has won several awards including the Creative Capital Project Grant, a New York Percent for the Arts Commission, and a New York Foundation for the Arts Award in performance art/multidisciplinary work. He is Assistant Professor at Columbia University’s School of the Visual Arts. Marcus Samuelsson is an award-winning chef, author, and food activist. Samuelsson is noted for defeating 21 fellow chefs on Bravo’s Top Chef Masters, winning $115,000 for the UNICEF Tap Project. He is the chef and owner of Red Rooster Harlem in New York City and his books include Aquavit and the New Scandinavian Cuisine, The Soul of a New Cuisine, New American Table, and his latest, Yes, Chef: A Memoir.
An inspired pairing for sure, and Biggers and Samuelsson are longtime friends besides. Watching their wide-ranging conversation online is the next best thing to having been there in person.
