In every generation, the dining table has been more than a mere surface on which to serve food. In a broader sense, the table has been a silent observer of changing ideals and beliefs.How do we eat, play, work, think, organize, gather, and converse at and around this important icon of American life? What does it mean to come to the table today? Co-curators Brittany Venturella and Annmarie Ventura explore the idea of the dining table with all its various implications, both past and present, through contemporary art.
