Support for the Exhibition Catalogue, "Hole History Show: Origins of the American-Style Donut" is provided by The Kindling Fund, a grant program administered by SPACE Gallery as part of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts Regional Regranting Network. 

 Artist Alexis Iammarino and designer Maeve O’Regan will design, publish, and print a catalogue from a recent exhibition curated by Iammarino called “Hole History Show: Origins of the American-style Donut,” a collection of art, performance and writing that responded to a claim that the hole-in-the-donut was singularly invented by a 19th-century sea captain from Rockport, Maine.

The creation of this catalogue will capture the scope of the project with beautifully documented plates of the 64 works of art, reproductions of memorabilia, and over 14 written submissions which include culinary history, poems, short fiction, oral history, and lecture transcriptions. Organizing, installing, and documenting this exhibition brought together people from a broad geography and energized ideas about the origins of the American culinary history. This catalogue aims to become a document of public history to be gifted to regional libraries and historical societies. At the publication’s launch, there will be an interdisciplinary event pairing chefs and artists to invent donut-inspired foods for the public.
