The Slow Food movement is about eating right: not just healthily or environmentally-friendly, but in a way that forces us to labor for the ingredients to our meal and as a result, truly savor our sustenance. That’s what Patrick Wilson wants us to do when we view his latest show, “Slow Food” at Curator’s Office. Wilson layers quadrangles of color, some bold, some discreet, and some concentric, and some obscured by smokey panels. But Slow Food is not about just the delicious moment you’re in. It’s also about looking back to simpler times for instruction for growing and preparing food. It uses heritage seeds and seasonal ingredients; Wilson’s work remembers minimalists who have come before, in particular, Josef Albers, whose “Homages to the Square” is a major influence.
THE EXHIBITION IS ON VIEW NOON to 6 P.M. WEDNESDAY TO SATURDAY TO OCT. 17 AT CURATOR’S OFFICE, 1515 14TH ST. NW. FREE. (202) 387-1008.
