Disjecta Contemporary Art Center is pleased to present Culinaria (Art + Food + Community), an exhibition and series of dinners during the fall of 2018, which relaunches the past Disjecta Culinaria dinner program. Culinaria (Art + Food + Community) pairs artists and chefs to create unique community events, providing opportunities for collaboration, creative risk-taking, and the exchange of new ideas between two very different creative realms.
Curated by Blake Shell, the exhibition explores the intersection of art, food, and community, including work by artists Jodie Cavalier and MK Guth, Fernanda D’Agostino, Julie Green, Ben Sanders, Manu Torres, and Jessie Weitzel. Featuring painting, sculpture, photography of floral arrangements, video projections, site-specific installations, and a new art bar, Culinaria transforms Disjecta Contemporary Art Center into a dynamic dining room where food serves as an entry point into ideas of camaraderie, consumption, sustainability, politics, and exchange. In addition to the fall exhibition dinner and event pairings of Cavalier/Guth with chef Jason French, D’Agostino with chef Carlo LaMagna, Green with chef Johanna Ware, and Sanders with bartender Leah Brown; Manu Torres and Jessie Weitzel will be included in future Culinaria events in 2019.
On View: September 23 – November 3, 2018
