Wicket Leaks at Flux Factory

  • Flux Factory 39-31 29th Street Long Island City, NY, 11101 United States (map)

Curated by Abdul DubeIllesha Khandelwal and Will Owen

June 22 – July 13 
Exhibition Hours: Thursday – Sunday 1-6 p

Using the lenses of food and sports, Wicket Leeks showcases cooks, athletes, researchers, artists, coaches, and makers to help investigate the unsavory histories of nationalist, religious, and corporate colonialism in a palatable way, while not sugar-coating its effects, in order to help us better digest our present and cook up a healthier future.

The title Wicket Leeks refers to the wicket– a part of the equipment for the sport of Cricket spread by the British Empire, and Leeks– one of the most common and ancient edible plants in the onion family. It is also in reference to WikiLeaks– the international investigative journalism non-profit.
