Alyssa Greenberg writes about her visit to Tastier at Space 1026
In the review, Greenberg recognizes the connections made in the work to America’s consumer culture:
Leslie Friedman knows her way around a suggestive mise-en-scène. That much is clear after about a millisecond of looking at “Tastier,” her show at Space 1026; from every angle, the pieces deftly skewer the culture of materialism and do it stylishly, with maximum symbolic impact. Using time-honored icons of the culture – naked women, Coca-Cola — and tropes of pop art, “Tastier” is nothing we haven’t seen before. Its arrangement and choice of context, however, transcend cliché and successfully draw visitors into its gleeful crassness.
