Disjecta returns to a savory and successful formula for a new season of Culinaria, the chef-driven dinner series bringing food lovers and art lovers together around the table at Disjecta in support of the Curator-in-Residence program. Pairing chefs, the curator and the artists, Culinaria offers intimate access to the creative process culminating in a unique menu created specifically in response to the exhibition.

For our first dinner of the season, ambitious and innovative Chef Henry Kibit will be exploring the architecture of flavor and nutrition against the backdrop of Intimate Horizons. Chef Kibit and his staff are as much a part of the show as the art, choreographing the often graceful, sometimes haphazard ballet of the kitchen in full view.

Seating is limited to just 40 guests, so join us for one dinner or subscribe to the entire season and support Disjecta’s trend-setting Curator-in-Residence program.

Price includes exhibition tour with the curator, dinner, and beverages including wine and beer. 21+ only. All dinners will be held on the Monday night following the CiR opening receptions in our 3,500 square foot exhibition space. Dinner dates and chefs will be updated on our website, tweeted, emailed and otherwise widely disseminated.

Participants will have the opportunity to meet with curator Rachel Adams, the guest chef, Disjecta director Bryan Suereth and artists participating in the exhibitions.

Chef Kibit started his culinary career in the grand dining rooms of old Detroit and studied under Thomas Keller at Ad Hoc and Bouchon in Napa. His time in Portland has found him pushing the envelope at Rocket, Noble Rot and most recently NW 23’rds Fireside. He is excited to speak to Claire and Bahar’s work through his interactive, traditional cuisine.

Rachel Adams is an independent curator and writer based in Austin. From 2010 to 2013, she was the Associate Curator of Exhibitions and Public Programs at The Contemporary Austin, curating a number of exhibitions and video projects, including exhibitions with Seher Shah, Amie Siegel and Ragnar Kjartansson. Prior to moving to Texas, Adams lived in San Francisco and Chicago; curating at Queens Nails Projects and David Cunningham Projects in San Francisco; and co-directing Lloyd Dobler Gallery in Chicago from 2006-2008. Her writing has been included in, Arts + Culture Texas, Art Practical, Modern Painters, and Texas Architect. Adams holds an MA in Exhibition and Museum Studies from the San Francisco Art Institute and a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
