?TOPIAN DINNER in MOCAD’s Mike Kelley Mobile Homestead on the road!

Join us for a participatory meal and conversation that shifts, disrupts, and reimagines the “American” meal in order to create new relationships and highlight the values we wish our culture(s) espoused. Building off our utopian dinners from 2017, this project looks at how we break bread at a table with those across a variety of divides. These events involve eating, cooking, talking, singing, remote tea parties with Tehran, long-distance brunches with Beijing and more. We’ll have a variety of events going on during the day, so come by any time and see what we have cooking. We’ll be in the Mike Kelley Mobile Homestead, so look for the big white mobile home and that’s where you’ll find us. All ages welcome! Produced by The Hinterlands and Poetic Societies; created by The Hinterlands, Ava Ansari, Renee Willoughby with Salakastar, Julia Yezbick, Amir Pousti (Tehran), Alireza Keymanesh (Tehran), TGIS ???? (Beijing), and Jonathan Flatley.
