Family Meal, 2013

performance installation


The artist collaborated with staff cooks employed by a restaurant located within the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Considering the concept of a “family meal” or “shift meal,” which is a dinner created by a restaurant’s cooks to feed employees in the kitchen, the artist invited staff cooks to propose and produce an alteration to their restaurant’s menu for one day. This project expanded the concept of a traditionally private meal for employees to include patrons and museum visitors. Works created in collaboration with: Hamilton Alvarez and Jodeson Francisco
