Closing the opening week of The Shape of a Practice, this meal-at-a-distance brought speakers to the transatlantic kitchen table along with so-called invasive species from the US and Germany.



To close the opening week of The Shape of a Practice, artists created a convivial meal-at-a-distance with so-called invasive species.
