In conjunction with the Center-funded exhibition and performance series action is primary, Pew Fellow and choreographer Meg Foley hosts two dinner parties. Part performance, part discussion, and part party, these events invite attendees to discuss the project's improvisational practice with core collaborators Meg Foley, Kristel Baldoz, Marysia Stokłosa, and Annie Wilson.
The first dinner party will be held on March 17 at 5:30 p.m. at W/N W/N Coffee Bar, and will be hosted by curator and writer Michèle Steinwald. The second event will be held on a yet-to-be-determined date during the exhibition.
