Recipes for an Encounter displays historical and contemporary artworks from the 1960s to the present that are characterized by a set of instructions or rules that allow the viewer to be an active participant in the artwork. Often times yielding to chance to determine their outcome, these artworks-as-recipes anticipate an encounter with the unexpected for the viewer/participant. The artists in Recipes for an Encounter – Joseph Beuys, Robert Filliou, Allan Kaprow, Janice Kerbel, Alison Knowles, Suzanne Lacy, Mierle Laderman Ukeles, Glenn Lewis, Mads Lynnerup, Yoko Ono, Kristina Lee Podesva and Alan McConchie, Emily Roysdon, Steve Shada and Marisa Jahn, Noam Toran, Matt Volla -invite the viewer to experience for themselves whatever will unfold, take place, and be consumed anew by each participant’s encounter with their work. Recipes for an Encounter contains original written “recipes” as well as historic photographic/videographic documentation of seminal events and performances that took place in the 1960s and ’70s.
