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.
