Everyones Favorite Table Setting

Judy Chicago's Dinner Party was produced between 1974 and 1979 is an elaborate project that pays homage to actual and mythical women in history. At the table are 39 table settings that include a range of crafts, plates, runners, and eating utensils. In Judy's words, this project started as a simple homage to "twenty-five women who were eaten alive".

Happy preparing !

Rirkrit Tiravanija- an artist known for his food

Rirkrit Tiravanija, a contemporary artist born in Buenos Aires, Argentina , is known for the lavish meals he prepares in gallery spaces and served to viewers. Through cooking and serving, Tiravanija's work explores the role of artists in society. The artwork then becomes the making, production and serving of food. While the end result may be a photograph or a memory.
Relational artists such as Rirkrit explore a range of social relationships by producing art that questions and blurs boundaries that exist within art production.
