RECLAMATION: Recipes, Remedies, and Rituals



RECLAMATION: Recipes, Remedies, and Rituals is a new participatory exhibition featuring nine interdisciplinary artists.

Now - Dec 31, 2021.

RECLAMATION: Recipes, Remedies, and Rituals is a new participatory exhibition featuring nine interdisciplinary artists. Conceived as a virtual experience that re-contextualizes the traditional role of women in providing sustenance and healing, RECLAMATION will also feature content submitted by the public, interwoven with the artists’ work. Submissions can be uploaded starting on November 15, 2020.

RECLAMATION is an evolving exhibition and ingredient archive that examines food as a creative medium for visual art and a connective tool for exploring intergenerational and intercultural experiences. The exhibition centers around a kitchen table, the central domestic object for gatherings of family and friends. Nine artists will activate their own kitchen tables, sharing photographs, videos and stories about how they use this domestic object. These intimate glimpses into the artists’ homes simultaneously reveal a work of art and the process by which it is made.

Through a digital ingredient archive, developed in partnership with the Family Arts Museum and Ten-Fifteen Media, online visitors can participate in the exhibition by sharing recipes, anecdotes, photos and reflections related to food. Submissions will be layered with the artists’ work, creating a dynamic portal for exploring the interconnectedness of food and the communal nature of nourishing and curing the body. In this way, both artists and viewers will use those materials to honor women’s roles in the practices and traditions surrounding food.

RECLAMATION: Recipes, Remedies, and Rituals opens a year-long season of programming that examines the relationship between food, art, and women as part of the Women, Arts, and Social Change initiative at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.
