New York Live Arts Hosts a Feminist Dinner Party Installation

New York Live Arts (Live Arts) to present premier performance installation Dinner Party: 1960-2000s by Liliana Dirks-Goodman, March 10, 2019. Celebrating Women's History Month, the event explores feminist history and community building through the act of sharing a meal.

Set in the 2nd wave feminist movement, the work addresses trauma, body autonomy, and the erotic in an act of remembering that aims to empower participants to imagine a liberated future. The food and the table settings are designed as a riff on feminist artist Judy Chicago's "Dinner Party" to look at and be critical of advances in domestic life that have given women greater freedom and autonomy. Comfort food will be served by chef Kristin Worrall on place settings designed and fabricated by Liliana Dirks-Goodman. Dinner Party will end with a guided meditation led by Regina Rocke. A $400 level ticket includes one place setting, all pieces designed and signed by Dirks-Goodman, featuring: 1 bronze or white brass "Spordo" (spork), 1 "Quilt patch" embroidered napkin, and 1 white ceramic bowl.

Two Seatings of Dinner Party: 1960-2000s will take place at New York Live Arts (219 West 19th St New York, NY 10011) March 10, 2019 at 5:00 PM and 8:00 PM. Tickets start at $35/$50/$400 and can be purchased here.
