As part of their Legendary fundraiser, the Dallas Contemporary has commissioned catering artist Jennifer Rubell (daughter of  Miami art collectors Don and Mera Rubell) to cater/create a participatory artwork involving Texas cuisine. The piece, titled Made In Texas, will make visible the human labor that is most often hidden inside the kitchens, factories and warehouses of Texan businesses. On each of 7 large platforms, a living scene taken directly from a factory, workshop or enterprise in the Dallas/Fort Worth area will be taking place — assembling tamales, stretching queso Oaxaca, cooking salsa, pressing linens, polishing silverware/plates, and arranging flowers. It all happens on Thursday September 22, from 7-10 pm. Tickets for the event, which supports Dallas Contemporary exhibition and learning programs, are $200 for nonmembers.
