Central District Forum for Arts & Ideas and Bellevue Arts Museum bring you a night of performances inspired by BAM exhibitions. Curator Imani Sims brings together a group of artists to create a program of unique performances specifically created for this evening.

What are Kitchen Sessions?

  1. An opportunity to highlight and celebrate Black female-identified and gender non-conforming artists.
  2. An opportunity to reflect on and discuss art with the artists.
  3. An opportunity for intergenerational dialogue.

The Kitchen seems like the place where nourishment is found. Not only food but also valuable lessons. Little girls go from childhood to the kitchen. At some point we graduate into womanhood. What is the rite of passage that allows you to enter the sacred space of the kitchen? It functions as an epicenter, a doorway into a space where it is safe to examine the crooked room. It is safe to talk about the long list of things we experience as Black women. As our hands conjure nourishment, our mouths begin to form spells and we reshape our reality for a moment.
