About the Book
The A.I.R. Gallery Community Cookbook is a collection of recipes that were contributed by members, staff, fellows and other female artists affiliated with the Brooklyn-based gallery. Edited by Dina Kantor, a 2013-2014 gallery fellow, the book includes recipes and tips, along with photographs exploring the identities of the artists who shared them. Dina photographed the artists in their studios, examining the links between creativity in the kitchen and in their art practice.
This diverse collection of recipes could only come from this community. Cooking from this cookbook will allow readers to gain insight into various aspects of the A.I.R. Gallery artists’ lives. The women who make up this community are just as diverse as these recipes: they are artists, bakers, cooks, theorists, wives, mothers, daughters, teachers, feminists, designers, writers, poets and much, much more.
