Contemporary art and dessert are two great tastes that taste great together (just ask Wayne Thiebaud), and such is the sweet spot of Kreëmart. Founded by Raphael Castoriano, the confectionery crew has facilitated the creation of Leandro Erlich‘s chocolate replica of a Mies Barcelona day bed (less is s’mores?), collaborated with Olaf Breuning to dispatch a team of monkeymen proferring ice-cream-filled plastic bananas at last year’s Art Basel Miami Beach, and helped Maurizio Cattelan and friends wish journalist Linda Yablonsky happy birthday with a cake shaped like a tiled bathroom wall, which makes slightly more sense when you consider the name of the artist’s magazine: Toilet Paper.

Rather maddeningly vaccuum-packed versions of the treats were on hand at New York’s Swiss Institute recently at a preview of “Painting and Jugs,” an exhibition of large-scale paintings (by Linus Bill and Adrien Horni) and handmade ceramics (by Bastien Aubry and Dimitri Broquard) on view through June 3. Kreëmart documented the project in this tasty video:
