Join us at Studio Museum 127 to celebrate the publication of 1998–99 artist in residence Elia Alba’s new book The Supper Club. The evening will include an interactive “menu” of events including vignette-style readings by artists Dread Scott, Lorraine O’Grady, Michael Paul Britto, Nicole Awai, and Shaun Leonardo, and a special performance by artist Wanda Raimundi-Ortiz as “Chuleta.” Alba will close out the program with remarks alongside contributor Brandi T. Summers and editor Sara Reisman.

Featuring critical conversations and contributions on race and visual culture, as well as fifty-eight portraits of artists of color, The Supper Club documents Elia Alba’s six-year multifaceted project addressing issues ranging from sanctuary, policing, and post-Black identity to the intersectional entanglements of gender, race, and privilege. Copies of The Supper Club will be available for purchase following the program.
