Art Speaks: Artists in the Kitchen
4 artist/chef teams gather for a panel discussion

Being on a team for Artists in the Kitchen is to begin to understand how an artist actually works, to be part of that process. I’m beginning to think of it as walking into a room you’ve never been in before, yet it’s totally familiar in so many ways and not in others. That’s because it’s partially about your own work and then discovering the visions and processes of the other person there, the artist.” —Lynne Rossetto Kasper
Beginning December 27, 2017, 50 all-women artist/chef-restaurateur teams met to join forces in an innovative partnership whereby chefs are inspiring the artists to produce new artworks, culminating in the exhibition. ]To honor the mission of Textile Center, each of the artists is incorporating a textile process, material, or sensibility in their completed work. Recognizing the abundance of local culinary and visual art talent of Twin Cities-area women, “this invitational exhibition forges a new partnership that celebrates the work of women artists in both the art studio and culinary worlds.”— Artists in the Kitchen Organizers.
Artists in the Kitchen premieres in conjunction with the 25th anniversary of Women Chefs & Restaurateurs (WCR) national conference, Women Speak: Curating the Future of Food from April 21-23.
