On behalf of Saint Francis House of Hospitality, artist Joshua Kent presents a series of collaborative performance events exploring the city’s current economic/political climate through the lens of shared communal meals. Showcasing the work of collective Lucky Pierre and other invited social practitioners, the program’s three iterations represent performative actions that investigate the process and politics involved with meal preparation and consumption. In response to the history of Saint Francis House, a site that provides hospitality to all persons in need, the series aims to remove the distinction between strangers and neighbors. Through highlighting the labor and acts of care that support daily life, "Home, Less, Making" creates space for artists and viewers to break bread, coming together around the table.
Please join us Saturday, November 7 at 7pm for a presentation of "Final Meals" by Lucky Pierre and Sunday, November 8 at 6pm for an enactment of history by Paul Durica. Both nights will feature a beautiful printed edition by Marc Fischer. All events are free and open to the public, with a meal to follow.
Seating is limited for the November 7th event. Please RSVP through Eventbrite here.
