The Brooklyn Museum's annual gala featured plenty of surrealist-inspired edible art this year, including melting heads sculpted from cheese, a 20-foot Andy Warhol head filled with snack cakes and plenty of dead rabbits to explain painting to. While the champagne fountains were explicitly Duchampian in lineage, they seemed somewhat upscale compared to the original; on the other hand, cycling bubbly through an actual working urinal would probably have presented logistical problems.
