Aki Sasamoto addressing a crowd at her homemade food rental truck
Cambridge Arts invites you to order a performance on the Cambridge Common. Sasamoto will perform her acclaimed "Food Rental", a hand-made food cart by which the artist offers a series of individually-ordered performances in place of hotdogs or pretzels. Part improv, part installation, Sasamoto’s work reframes an every-day interaction into a slightly awkward artistic exchange that questions the line between customer and audience.

This performance is part of Common Exchange, a multi-faceted art project that celebrates and examines the Cambridge Common following it's recent renovation. Common Exchange will run throughout the spring, summer, and fall of this year, and includes performances, installations, exhibitions, and a special-edition newspaper.
