Description

Culinaria: Jodie Cavalier, MK Guth, and Jason French (Ned Ludd) at Camp Colton
A Meal at Camp: Engaging the Elements

Each course of this dinner event unfolds to reveal information about the land and time, forcing us to negotiate our relationships to each. Focusing on food that reflects the area and foraged ingredients from Camp Colton, the collaboration between Jodie Cavalier, MK Guth, and Ned Ludd reflects an honoring of the land and the continual flux in what grows in the forest. Conviviality, walking in the forest, searching, seeing, uncovering, collaborating, and remembering are all intertwined in this meal experience.

Guth and Cavalier are spending time in the area studying plant life and history. They will use this research to construct menus and art objects. Jason French, head chef and owner at Ned Ludd, will prepare a meal at Camp Colton related to the artists’ concepts and the environment of the land surrounding the camp. French and his team believe that great food requires passion for the harmony of provenance, preparation, and presentation.

This dinner is presented in partnership with c3:initiative through a c3: Studio Residency at Camp Colton. Using adaptive residencies, exhibitions, and public programs, c3 offers forward-thinking models for collaboration and resource sharing. At c3’s rural campus, Camp Colton is a site for art, ideas, celebration, and retreat. Artists-in-Residence are invited to produce new works, conduct solitary or community based research, or stage performances and spatial interventions highlighting this historic land. Camp Colton is located one hour southeast of Portland in Colton, OR.

**Tip: Dress for walking outdoors in Oregon in October!**

Jason French is the head chef and owner at Ned Ludd, an American Craft Kitchen and Elder Hall, a Gathering Space in Portland, Oregon.

About the Exhibition

This dinner is presented in conjunction with Culinaria (Art + Food + Community), an exhibition and series of dinners during the fall of 2018, which relaunches the past Disjecta Culinaria dinner program. Culinaria (Art + Food + Community) pairs artists and chefs to create unique community events, providing opportunities for collaboration, creative risk-taking, and the exchange of new ideas between two very different creative realms.

The exhibition explores the intersection of art, food, and community, including work by artists Jodie Cavalier and MK Guth, Nanda D’Agostino, Julie Green, Ben Sanders, Manu Torres, and Jessie Weitzel. Featuring painting, sculpture, photography of floral arrangements, video projections, site-specific installations, and a new art bar, Culinaria transforms Disjecta Contemporary Art Center into a dynamic dining room where food serves as an entry point into ideas of camaraderie, consumption, sustainability, politics, and exchange. In addition to the fall exhibition dinner and event pairings of Cavalier/Guth with chef Jason French, D’Agostino with chef Carlo LaMagna, Green with chef Johanna Ware, and Sanders with bartender Leah Brown; Manu Torres and Jessie Weitzel will be included in future Culinaria events in 2019.

Culinaria (Art + Food + Community) received support from the Ford Family Foundation. Disjecta Contemporary Art Center is supported by the Regional Art and Culture Council, the Oregon Arts Commission, the National Endowment for the Arts, The James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation, the Oregon Community Foundation, and the Robert and Mercedes Eichholz Foundation. Other business and individuals donated funding to this project. Thank you to everyone for your generosity.
