The Dinner Lecture Series strives to illuminate the practice of the current artist(s) exhibiting in the gallery space and extend the participants’ thinking around topics related to the show. Discussions and debates are encouraged and facilitated by the convivial family style meal that coincides with the lecture that takes place in a comfortable loft apartment in the Mission District.
