2017 Biennial

Susan Cianciolo’s Run Restaurant Untitled

TUE, Apr 18, 2017
5:30–8:30 pm

Location: Floor One, Untitled

For the 2017 Whitney Biennial, Susan Cianciolo revisits her 2001 Run Restaurant by presenting it within the Museum’s own eatery, Untitled. An immersive event for the senses, Cianciolo transforms the restaurant into her vision of a communal space. New tapestries and linens, custom uniforms for the waitstaff, drawings and collages, performances, and a new multicourse dinner menu developed in collaboration with Untitled executive chef Michael Anthony will be featured.

An artist, filmmaker, and fashion designer, Cianciolo has been an influential cultural figure since the 1990s. After closing her clothing label, Run, Cianciolo first presented Run Restaurant at Alleged Gallery, which was across the street from what would become the site of the Whitney’s new building at 99 Gansevoort Street Run Restaurant Untitled, 2017 is the most fully realized version of the artist’s restaurant projects to date, a unique, highly stylized dining experience with shared food, drink, music, and performance.
