Whether she said it or not, Marie-Antoinette’s infamous quote “let them eat cake” has been used for everything from a call to arms for class revolution to ironic patisserie slogans.

These words have come to be associated with the naive, the willfully ignorant, the libertine, and the apathetic. This event provides a place for us to come together to show, discuss, and contemplate our place in the class war – and we welcome your contributions and thoughts! Works on display will include framed works, 3D sculpture and 3 performance pieces. A written exhibition booklet will be available in English (and available as a digital PDF).

Engage in our dialogue around “perfect” food, sugar addiction, diet shaming, class inequality, food for show, access to food, and more. Join us on February 23rd, 2020 as our collective and guest creators present what “inedible cakes” means to them.

Open call for submissions is now closed.

Note: The Papercut Arcade defines *artist as a person who practices any of the various creative arts, such as a sculptor, photographer, painter, novelist, poet, or filmmaker. The keyword is practice; therefore, if you make art or produce work with the intent of participating in a The Papercut Arcade challenge or exhibition, you ARE an artist.

This is not a juried or curated exhibition, but the artworks will be screened for offensive (illegal/oppressive/appropriative) content.
