Gregg Moore: Heirloom
Heirloom is a unique installation by artist and designer Gregg Moore, which will transform the PAA’s ground floor galleries into both a traditional exhibition of objects and a public space to dine. Heirloom will bring audiences into a conversation about making, buying, and eating that links the fields of art, craft, and design with the practices of farming and gardening. Moore uses ceramics’ unique relationship to the earth and the table to explore the deep connection between local agriculture and consumerism.
Table D’Hôte, a series of family-style meals presented by Moore and renowned chef Pierre Calmels of Le Chéri restaurant, will be held in the galleries throughout the duration of the exhibition. Calmels and Moore share a reverence for technique and craftsmanship in their respective fields, and are excited to be collaborating on a project the likes of which neither has ever quite embarked on before.
