Eric May for Trunk Show
Regular price $5.00
Eric May, a lifelong native of Chicagoland, has an enduring commitment to the intersections of art, food and community. As the head chef at Saugatuck, Michigan’s Ox-Bow School of Art and Artist Residency, May has helped to nourish and support artists for a decade and a half. As the director and founder of Roots & Culture Contemporary Art Center, he has organized exhibitions, screenings, performances and, of course, culinary programming, since 2006. His work is often engaged with the aesthetics and poethics of food as a new way to think and talk through the particular ways that it shapes culture and the communities surrounding it. Often partnering with other chefs, artists and artist-run spaces, May’s work highlights food’s particular hold over the cultural imaginary. He earned his BFA from the SAIC and his MFA from Northwestern.

Trunk Show is a mobile exhibition space usually located in Chicago. Since 2013 we've featured monthly solo shows of commissioned artist bumper stickers. The sticker lives, rides along with, and helps propel a medium beat up 1999 forest green Ford Taurus owned by Raven Falquez Munsell and Jesse Malmed. Bumper stickers are sold à la carte and by annual subscription. Openings follow a nomadic, symbiotic logic and include a public affixing, conceptual catering and thematic soundtrack.
