Requiem for Burgerland
Feb 14-March 26, 2019
A retrospective art show of Rich Stevens's Burgerland Series (2014-2019)
The FoodArt Collection is proud to present the culmination of Rich Stevens's Burgerland Series with 20 artworks spanning five years of artistic output.
New acrylic panel paintings are paired with intricate mixed media works telling the story of Burgerland from its earliest miracle to its apocalyptic ending through these iconographic artworks.
For this exhibition we borrowed back and displayed nearly all of the Burgerland Series (one work's whereabouts are still and possibly forever unknown).
Rich Stevens's alter ego Jumpnacious Tambingo made a return appearance to serve mass and preside over the wake.
Rich Stevens, So Drunk I Made an Enemies List, 2018, acrylic on panel, 14" x 18"
Rich Stevens, Infidelities at the Gate, 2019, acrylic on panel, 14" x 18"
