Setting 1880-1920 / Dinner Party

Wednesday, July 19, 7 - 8:30 PM

This dinner party and lecture performance led by Liliana Dirks-Goodman will focus on the utopian design visions of seven first-wave white feminists who fought for the betterment of womens lives during late 19th and early 20th century North America. 

The dinner party plans to present both domestic and architectural models of what cooperation and interdependence might've looked like through an examination of historical precedents including the Columbian Exposition of 1893. It seeks to continue a conversation around envisioning a model of feminist solidarity that embraces all women without the cooptation of patriarchal, capitalist norms. 

Dinner will be prepared by chef Kristin Worral, who will use recipes from Rumford Kitchen's cookbook. Artistic direction by Mayfield Brooks.

This event takes place in conjunction with Past Live (June 22 - July 22, 2017), the SHIFT Residency exhibition.
