About This Book
Like Sugar explores both the problematic and the joyful aspects of sugar, complicating our view of how this multi-layered substance affects us. With artwork by contemporary artists such as Vik Muniz, Julia Jacquette, Zineb Sedira, Laurie Simmons, Kara Walker, and others; historical materials such as maps, prints, and books; and material culture such as cane-cutting tools and sugar dishes, Like Sugar raises questions and encourages contemplation about the role of sugar in our lives. This book features essays and reflections by curators, artists, and scholars, along with extensive photography of the installation and the individual objects and artworks included in the exhibition, and more.
Like Sugar was honored with a 2022 Award of Excellence by the Association of Art Museum Curators (AAMC) for publication from an organization with an operating budget of up to $10 million. The catalogue was also a winner in the 2020 American Institute of Graphic Arts 50 Books | 50 Covers design competition.
