Eugenia Butler (1947 – 2008) played a formative, but often overlooked role in the conceptual
art movement. Building on Butler’s notion of ideas as objects, in 1993, she invited 26 artists to
join her for a series of conversations over a meail, in a hidden booth at Art/LA ’93. Grounded by
the story-telling mode of exchange over a meal, The Kitchen Table (1993) project included
notable artists, such as Allan Kaprow, John Outterbridge, Carolee Schneemann, Suzanne Lacy,
Felipe Ehrenberg, and Joan Jonas. It was Butler's belief that the project and the deep exchange
of ideas it proposed were a valid form of art. Butler’s daughter, the artist Corazon del Sol,
revives the project here where the off-site conversations will be screened.
