In 1975, the art journal VISION was conceived and edited by Bay Area Conceptual artist Tom Marioni and published by Crown Point Press. The first volume, Vision #1: California was followed by four more, the last coming out in 1981. The first three volumes relate to specific places: California, Eastern Europe, and New York. The fourth volume, Vision #4: Word of Mouth (1980) is a boxed set of three white vinyl records of artist talks recorded on the South Pacific island of Ponape. The fifth volume, Vision #5: Artists’ Photographs, is a box of unbound reproductions of photographs by artists who are not photographers. And now, because it’s never too late to eat or to make art, we present Vision #6: Art and Food (2019).
For this volume of Vision, combining one scene (art) with another (food) seemed a natural progression. Marioni invited 19 local artists to submit a recipe and an artwork to accompany it. Recipes for crackers, fried fish, prison pizza, pink cake, biscotti, cookies, curry, a sandwich and many more are included with easy to follow instructions (with some additional advice!).
Artists participating are Michael Brennan, Brad Brown, Enrique Chagoya, John Chiara, Howard Fried, Peter Gutkin, Diane Andrews Hall, Doug Hall, Mildred Howard, Paul Kos, Tom Marioni, Andrew McClintock, Susan Middleton, Gay Outaw, Laurie Reid, Kent Roberts, Alice Shaw, Catherine Wagner, and John Zurier.
