How Shall We Dine?
June 2, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm$100
Rockland Center for the Arts will present “How Shall We Dine?,” an interactive event hosted by the Rockland Center for the Arts. The Burnt Asphalt Family is an artist collective that uses performance, glass, and food to investigate American culture, craft, and relational aesthetics. Their aim – to deal with the artifacts of artmaking and creating a haptic experience where the creation of the work happens in a moment of interaction with the audience. Their event will transform the gallery into a hybrid of a dinner party, performance, and installation that will invite the audience to participate by enjoying edible installations and food cooked by fire sculptures. As a family they believe that who gathers around your dining table is a marker of who your friends and family are and would like to invite you to join them for an evening.
RoCA’s Emerson Gallery will hold an installation, from floor to ceiling, which contains sculptures made by various Burnt Asphalt Family members. It will be made of glass, neon, found objects and food and will create an environment that invites the audience members to engage and interact with the installation. The attendees will deconstruct and eat parts of the sculptures together and in turn become part of the art.
Also on view for the fundraiser will be Shadows and Light, a silent auction of black and white photography available for bidding both at RoCA and online. All proceeds benefit RoCA’s exhibitions and educational programs.
Ticket are $100 per person for the June 2nd event. To purchase a ticket call (845) 358-0877 or visit www.rocklandartcenter.org.
