Michael Rakowitz will discuss his work with curator and art historian, Chus Martinez. Rakowitz, an Iraqi-American artist based in Chicago, most recently presented his first museum survey at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. This exhibition included ‘Enemy Kitchen (2003–ongoing)’ which explores the connections between hostility and hospitality as veterans of the Iraq War serve Iraqi recipes to the public through a retrofitted food truck on the plaza. Rakowitz has exhibited worldwide including dOCUMENTA (13), P.S.1, MoMA, MassMOCA, Castello di Rivoli, the 16th Biennale of Sydney, the 10th Istanbul Biennial and Sharjah Biennial 8.
