Writers serialize novels in Yelp reviews and actresses diversify via cooking blogs, so why wouldn’t artists have something to say about the indomitable encroachment of foodie culture? “Today’s Specials,” a group exhibition with a cheeky attitude toward our current slavishness to food at Pace Gallery in London, is a reminder that while artists will always try to take the piss, they don’t always need to be starving.
“Today’s Specials” is on view through September 6 at Pace London, 6 Burlington Gardens.
