Elia Alba: The Supper Club
Sunday, October 15
This month's artist talk features interdisciplinary Dominican-American artist, Elia Alba; U.S. Virgin Islands Culinary Ambassador for the Department of Tourism, Ralph Motta; and the Executive and Artistic Director of The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation, Sara Reisman.
Elia Alba will give a presentation on The Supper Club, a multifaceted art project that brings together prominent contemporary artists of color through portraiture and dialogue over dinner. This December, Alba will collaborate with Chef Motta to create a menu for the TAKE FIVE Art Festival in St. Croix, a celebration and exploration of personal histories that intersect within varying diasporas through the lens of race, gender, environment, power, and identity. The artist talk is moderated by TAKE FIVE curators Dulcina Abreu and Aaron Maier.
