Recipes for an Encounter

In conjunction with the book launch for Recipes for Encounter the Studio for Urban Projects will host a workshop with Michael Swaine, Larry Bogad, Amy Franceschini and co-editor of the book Marisa Jahn. The workshop will feature an exercise by Michael Swaine in stopping time to meet the speed of the city with slowness as well as an exercise in preparing a traditional American slave recipe for ‘ash cakes’ written by Frederick Douglas. Larry Bogad will show examples of tactical performance and guide participants in creative action planning and historical role-playing. Amy Franceschini’s exercise will remain top-secret until the day of the workshop.

The workshop is offered in conjunction with the book launch of Recipes for an Encounter, co-edited by Berin Golonu, Candice Hopkins, and Marisa Jahn which will take place on January 28th from 7-9 pm at Southern Exposure. Recipes for an Encounter is a compendium of recipes, instructionals, diagrams, scores and texts that function as catalysts for various types of encounters. Readers are invited to complete the work by testing out the recipes to yield infinitely varied outcomes.

This event is co-presented with REV-, a non-profit organization that furthers socially-engaged art, design, and pedagogy. REV- produces projects that fuse disciplines, foster diversity, and vary in form (workshops, publications, exhibitions, design objects, etc.) For more information please visit the REV- web site rev-it.org.

The workshop will take place at the Studio for Urban Projects storefront at 3579 17th Street between Dolores and Guerrero. Space is limited, please RSVP to hello@rev-it.org.
