La cuisine de Magritte at MoMA NY

What would happen if René Magritte created his artworks in the kitchen? Discover for yourself in this Magritte/food mash-up. With artist and food provocateur Elaine Tin Nyo and chef Lynn Bound from MoMA’s Cafe 2, you’ll learn to make La cuisine de Magritte. Then, you’ll go hands-on to assemble artworks using edible materials. It’s all in a day’s work when Magritte gets cooking!

Elaine Tin Nyo, a conceptual artist with a kitchen and a studio in Harlem, translates the tradition of genre painting into new media. Using performance, video, photography, cooking, and writing, she reframes the everyday rituals of food and its preparation so we can reflect on the inherent beauty and value of the seemingly unimportant moments of our lives. In addition to her visual arts background, she has learned at the side of home cooks and restaurant chefs on three continents. Tin Nyo has received project support from Creative Capital, the Bronx Museum, Seoksu Art Project, Franklin Furnace, and The Phillips Collection, among others. Her photographs, food, videos, installations, and performances have been presented at museums internationally. Her current project, This Little Piggy, follows five pigs from five ham-centric regions from birth to ham.
