What are Kitchen Sessions?

Kitchen Sessions are an opportunity to highlight and celebrate Black female identified artists, to reflect on and discuss art with these artists, and to develop inter-generational dialogue.

The Kitchen seems like the place where nourishment is found. Not only food but also valuable lessons. Little girls go from childhood to the kitchen. At some point we graduate into womanhood. What is the rite of passage that allows you to enter the sacred space of the kitchen?

It functions as an epicenter, a doorway into a space where it is safe to examine the crooked room. It is safe to talk about the long list of things we experience as Black women. As our hands conjure nourishment, our mouths begin to form spells and we reshape our reality for a moment.
