• A TABLE BECOMES A BRIDGE

April 13, 2019

Join Cannupa Hanska Luger, the Coe Center for the Arts, and Santa Fe Clay for Function plate-making sessions!

Function, a large-scale interactive artwork, will begin with a series of community workshops (in which Luger will lead participants in the making of plates) and conclude on August 15 with a dinner served in the Coe Center parking lot. Participants will share food and, at the end of the meal, shatter their dishes on the ground. As a ceramic artist, Cannupa is faced daily with the fragility of his art; and this community performance - combining breaking bread with breaking plates – will actively share the beauty and power of impermanence with an audience.

The August 15 dinner event, served family-style on long tables, will be simultaneously silly and profound, ephemeral and memorable, mundane and triumphant. As a continuation of the piece, 
Luger will collect the remnants, grind them into clay grog, and use them in a new series of artwork. In this way, he'll achieve Function's ultimate goal of "turning a table into a bridge.”
