White Columns is pleased to announce ‘White Columns TALKS’ – a series of conversations with artists and curators held on the occasion of our 50th anniversary exhibition From The Archives: White Columns & 112 Greene Street / 112 Workshop, 1970 – 2021… , which is on view through July 31.

The first talk in the series is between curator Catherine Morris and White Columns’ director Matthew Higgs. Morris will discuss her pioneering 1998 White Columns exhibition FOOD, that considered the history of the – now legendary – artist-run SoHo restaurant ‘Food’. About ‘Food’ Morris has said: “The restaurant ‘Food’ was … a remarkable place, created and run by an exceptional group of artists at an extraordinary historical moment. With Gordon Matta-Clark serving as anarchistic genius in residence, the restaurant was at once a meeting place, a business and a conceptual work of art.”

Catherine Morris is currently the Sackler Senior Curator at the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, Brooklyn Museum, where she has curated and co-curated a series of landmark exhibitions incuding: Lorraine O’Grady: Both/And (2021); We Wanted A Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965-1985 (2017); and Judith Scott: Bound And Unbound (2015); among many others. Morris has curated and co-curated three exhibitions for White Columns: FOOD (1998); Gloria: Another Look at Feminist Art in the 1970s (2002), with Ingrid Schaffner; and Regarding Gloria (2002), with Lauren Ross.
