Cooking and Conversation with Marcus Samuelsson, Julie Mehretu, and Rujeko Hockley

During this special event, chef Marcus Samuelsson and artist Julie Mehretu, along with Rujeko Hockley, the Whitney’s Arnhold Associate Curator, talk about art, food, and much more. 

Both born in Ethiopia and now New York-based, Samuelsson and Mehretu have been friends for decades. Despite working in different fields, they hold each other’s work in the highest regard and have supported each other in their respective pursuits. Follow along as chef Samuelsson prepares a special recipe just for the occasion, which coincided with the final days of Mehretu’s mid-career survey at the Whitney. 

COVID-19 vaccination and face coverings are not required but strongly recommended. Book tickets in advance and review our visitor policies.
