Gallery 263 is excited to announce Cookout, a solo exhibition by Zach Horn that contemplates the artist’s spiritual relationship with food. This show is part of Gallery 263’s Exhibition Proposal Series, a program in which shows are selected by a competitive jurying process. The multimedia pieces on view—which are made with acrylic paint, oil paint, plaster, and found objects, like spoons, mugs, forks, and cocktail umbrellas—function as a single installation. The artist began this body of work before the pandemic, back when terms like social distancing were unimaginable. As a result, Cookout inevitably morphed from a nuclear exploration of food to one that is more aspirationally communal.
