Naai- en quilt workshop

05.10–01.12.2019
de Appel, Schipluidenlaan 12, Amsterdam

In autumn of 2019, De Appel hosts the first solo show of Amsterdam based artist Patricia Kaersenhout. Her installation is a response to Judy Chicago's now-canonical piece The Dinner Party from the 1970s, which consisted of table sets dedicated to important women and goddesses to emphasize the underrepresentation of women in our history and social discourse. Kaersenhout's Guess Who's Coming to Dinner Too? departs from The Dinner Party, an ode to women from antiquity until the present, and mainly consists of American and European heroines. Kaersenhout wants to challenge the horizon of (art) history by shining light on the underrepresented or neglected stories of 38 Black women and women of colour.
