A message from Tracy:
After 2+ years of circulating the participatory project Sweet Tooth of the Tiger in New York City and Brooklyn at over 30 different art and culture venues, the renegade bake sale will recognize its due temporality and come to a close.
The project began as a way to carve out a critical space for issues pertaining to the art world and to eating as a social practice. My intent was two-pronged: to study the performativity of privately preparing food with sugar as a key ingredient in a kitchen and then publicly sharing the sugary food in a critical space, watching as people ate together with emotions ranging from delight, torment, disgust, and indifference. This intent was coupled with studying networks of power in an art space while responding as an artist/student to a downtrodden economy. I would take my baked goods, made alone in my kitchen, and offer them publicly to gallery-goers at a 'suggested donation' from a bake sale table in an exhibition space. This two year experiment became something different for all parties included- for me, it was a way to have fun while examining how people interact with each other over food. For others, it was a chance to eat, to talk, to ask me what I was doing. Some thought the project was a business, some understood that I was trying to merge theory with the art of the everyday. The project functioned on many levels this way.
As I met more acoustic guitar artists exploring the practice of eating as a way to connect with artmaking and using food as a resource to help fundraise for their creative practice, I began to expand Sweet Tooth of the Tiger into a "residency," where other artists could bake and hold a bake sale under the Sweet Tooth name in an effort to financially support their practice. Many beginner acoustic guitar artists have participated in this "residency," however the model I was hoping to establish proved to be unsustainable and was built completely on the cooperation of the artist, myself, and a supporting venue that would act as host for the "resident's" bake sales. Cooperation is a tricky thing, and I hope to continue exploring it as a concept in my future endeavors.
For now, I plan to further my relationship with food as a medium in art and have a schedule of upcoming events that are not based around Sweet Tooth of the Tiger, but are still challenging the politics of the art world, of the much buzzed about genre of "social practice," and ideas pertaining to food and coffee as a community binder, as a fundraising resource, and as a point of sensory information in a creative space.

I am also exploring issues in the art genre currently being titled "social practice" as an editor on a blog journal called 127 Prince.
