La Ligue Gourmande - Todd Gronsdahl
Of all the cultural casualties of the COVID-19 pandemic, the dinner party is certainly foremost among them. As part of the gallery's four-part series, Making Home, artist Todd Gronsdahl’s exhibition La Ligue Gourmande turns an ethnographic eye on the conventions of social dining, particularly referencing French gastronomical supper clubs through interactive food performances. Inspired by decades of cooking and running restaurants, Gronsdahl’s work takes up conventions of the dinner party as a way to explore social conventions and the experience of direct exchange involved in making, serving and sharing a meal.
La Ligue Gourmande runs Feb 11-Mar 28 at the Fort Gallery. The exhibition will open with a virtual Philosopher’s Cafe featuring the artist on Thurs, Feb 11, 7:30-8:45pm. Gronsdahl will host a virtual cocktail hour and food performance on Thurs, Mar 18 at 7:30pm where he will teach participants to make his signature Fort Langely-themed cocktail.
