This event has ended.

The artists and designers in this exhibition have created objects for the table—cups and plates, tea sets and silverware—that redefine the art of dining. Drawing from MAD’s collection, the exhibition features 60 objects for eating and drinking by such artists as Ted Muehling, Cindy Sherman, and Dale Chihuly. Featured works range from the beautifully handcrafted vessels of the early years of the collection, to elegant flatware and goblets, to recent conceptual works by artists such as Paul Scott, who uses the familiarity of tableware as a frame for contemporary issues. The show reveals the ways in which the table can be a domestic setting for families and feasts, as well as an intellectual space for ideas and history.
