Julia Jacquette. Design for paper plate, Banana Split. 1999. 7″ (17.8 cm) diam.

Since 1990, New York–based artist Julia Jacquette has been creating paintings about romance and desire. Her images of all-American food dishes juxtaposed with erotic phrases that play on common culinary adages, are playful and provocative metaphors for the relationship between eating, sexuality, and gender identity. For Projects 69, Jacquette designed a series of paper products, including plates, cups, and napkins, printed with original imagery and text. Available in MoMA’s Café/Etc., museum visitors can eat and drink from these works, providing a direct encounter with the issues explored.
