Join us to celebrate the closing of the exhibition Mountains in My Spoon: Artists and Food at the Lucas Artists Residency! Chef Kitty Greenwald and artist Grahame Weinbren will discuss their multimedia collaborative work Still Life with Banquet. Artist Susanne Cockrell invites visitors to taste homemade preserves and recounts the rich and varied stories of Bay Area home canners. A screening of Vorratskammer (Pantry), a film by artist collective My Villages documenting a year of sourcing, harvesting and preparing food produced in and around Berlin for the Uber Lebenskunst Festival at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, will be followed by related readings by former Lucas Artist Program Culinary Fellow Jessie Washburn.
This event is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Mountains in my Spoon: Artists and Food at the Lucas Artists Residency on view at the Project Space Gallery October 18, 2013 through February 9, 2014. The exhibition and related events are organized in association with Around the Table: food, creativity, community, a South Bay festival of food and the arts extending from July 2013 through April 2014. Featuring a flagship exhibition at the San Jose Museum of Art and accompanying festival of activities presented by thirty partnering organizations, Around the Table celebrates and explores the role that food plays in our lives.
