The Wende Museum invites our Culver City neighbors to join us for an evening of conversation and community. Speak with museum curators about their favorite pieces in the current Wende exhibition, Dinner Party Politics: Food Culture in the Eastern Bloc, and meet other people interested in the local arts community.
Wende curators Amanda Roth and Joes Segal will offer a series of short “spotlight talks” throughout the evening in which they will illuminate the exhibition and chat with visitors about their own questions and observations. Stay the entire night for a comprehensive tour of the exhibition, or just pop in for one or two talks!
From our current exhibition: This work depicts the typical Soviet woman as a windmill, with each arm representing a different responsibility and the time allotted for this task each day. She spends nine hours working, three hours cooking, one and a half hour shopping, one hour cleaning, and one hour doing laundry. At the end of the day, she is allowed seventeen minutes to spend with her children.
