You are invited to the preview presentation of A Jeli’s Tale: An Anthology of Kinship during the Three Story Street Feast on November 18th from 6pm – 9pm.
The Kinship Project began as an experimental public participation project consisting of over 200 photographs of African American families from 1910 to 2010 hung in the hallways of SHoP. I invited to public to add their own family stories and photography to the collection, but the publics contributed more than just their stories. During my residency at SHoP, I had the opportunity to collect sounds of children at play, music and documentation of family keepsakes. I would like to use this opportunity to share the Kinship Anthology with you while the project is still in progress. I welcome your thoughts and insights about the project.
Three Story Street Feast is a cross-cultural, street-food themed prix fixe five-course meal presenting local foods prepared by SHoP “resident” chef, Samm Petrichos, of Spice (http://spicechicago.tumblr.com/). The meal will be served in different spaces throughout Fenn Mansion in a “progressive style dinner” with performances embellishing the night. I will be documenting sound samples of the dinner, which may become a part of the Kinship Anthology as one of the performances.
This is an opportunity for the audience to ‘peek behind the curtain’ of the Kinship Project while enjoying a delicious five-course meal. I hope to see you there!
