MORDANT is an examination and documentation of our relationship to textiles by using a tablecloth as a canvas. A dinner cooked by artist Victoria Manganiello will be served directly on a table cloth she wove by hand.


MORDANT asks participants to join in the process of connecting fiber with dye; an integral part of Manganiello‘s artistic process. Recipes and ingredients have been chosen with direct consideration to the potential of dying that cloth and the meal will be served in such a way that the food will inevitably meet the cloth.

Filmmaker Kristin Kremers, who is known for capturing intimate relationships that are often blindspots in our culture will document the event - from farm - to table - to exhibition.

*Food and Wine will be served
