In 2014 Dina Kantor was selected as an A.I.R. Gallery Fellow.
As part of the program, fellows are asked to create a community
project. At the time, Kantor had just begun a new body of work
about community cookbooks and their relationship to identity
(still in progress), so she took the opportunity to create
a community cookbook for the gallery.

The resulting cookbook studies how the food we make and

share with family, friends and our communities plays a large
role in our identities.

Besides being a collection of recipes and tips that were

contributed by members, staff, fellows and other artists affiliated
with A.I.R., the book also includes photographs exploring the
identities of the artists who shared them. Kantor photographed
the artists in their studios, examining the links between creativity
in the kitchen and in their art practice.
 
 


 











 

The cookbook is softcover, 8.5˝ x 11˝, with 152 pages,
82 recipes and 80 color photographs. It is available for
purchase through Blurb for $40 by clicking here. In true
community cookbook style, a portion of the sales will be
donated directly back to A.I.R. Gallery's Fellowship program.
