Good Children is pleased to presentTastier, a mixed-media installation by new member Leslie Friedman.

Tastier explores the pervasiveness of substitutes in western lifestyles, in particular our increased consumption of sugar substitutes and pornography. The artist apprehensively looks towards a future where engineered simulations appear more and more like the real thing. What does it mean for the human experience if these essential elements, like sustenance and intimacy, are more and more accurate imitations? What will that mean for love and growth? Tastier, with it's candy-coated colors, will entice you into this heady existential crisis.

The exhibition will be on view June 10 - June 25 with regular gallery hours on Saturdays and Sundays from 12-5 PM. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, June 10 from 6-10 PM.
