This lively group exhibit takes its name from the story about Italian chef Massimo Bottura and how he came up with one of his signature dishes, a sort of deconstructed lemon tart. After his sous chef dropped a whole tart on the floor, Bottura was inspired by its splattered remains to invent a new, wild dessert that would become a runaway success. But even while this kitchen lore is a tale of victory wrested from the jaws of defeat, the organizers of “I Dropped the Lemon Tart” take a dimmer view of failure as a feature of the human condition, describing it “as something that permeates all aspects of being.” Still, the show doesn’t fail to please, thanks to contributions by Todd Bourret, Gelitin and Emily Mae Smith among others.
