Family Dinners Recontextualized in Search for Home

ATLANTA, GA:  Macey Ley’s Family Dinner 2020: The Pandemic Year(s?) is a reboot of an art installation that debuted in 2017 featuring footage of multiple family dinners across the United States, running the length of one full meal. Like three years ago, it centers around food relationships and the dynamics of family dinners, but today’s version re-examines what meals with family members means in the context of social distancing and restricted travel.

The Family Dinner art installation is part of the Searching for Home exhibition, a Project of the Margaret Virginia Philip Endowment, and is on view by appointment through December 12, 2020, at the Dalton Gallery on the Agnes Scott College campus.
