September 20th: Mordant Dinner
On September 20th, we are hosting a Mordant dinner, which is part of a series created by artist, Victoria Manganiello, who invites guests to explore the intersections between food and fiber in Mordant. This is a series of dinners prepared by the artist and served upon a tablecloth she wove by hand. The meal is served in such a way that the food inevitably meets the cloth, demonstrating the color and dye potential of the ingredients cooked with the fibers woven. Prepared to leave lasting marks, Manganiello translates each dinner into a painting canvas which then becomes an homage to the ingredients, fibers and persons of a particular evening and place.
In collaboration with filmmaker Kristin Kremers, Mordant will be the focus of an upcoming film by the same name that explores our subliminal and ubiquitous connections to textiles and color. The film will follow Manganiello and Kremers as they conduct dinners around the world. New York and NYTM mark the one stop along this journey to document the nuances of color and cloth with dinners planned for Transylvania, Romania, Kyoto, Japan and others.
