DESCRIPTION

In 18th century France, during a time of food shortages and hardship, Marie Antoinette, wife of Louis XVI, the King of France, was told the people have no food to eat, to which she responded "Let them eat cake."

This exhibition is a mixture of what that era represented: wealth, big hair, poverty and images from nightmares of Francisco Goya in a more modern interpretation.
