In conjunction with the exhibit A Dark and Scandalous Rockfall, (Una oscura y escandalosa caída de piedras) opening January 25, 2018, the Mexican Cultural Institute is excited to host a special dinner with chef, cookbook author and PBS host Pati Jinich.

Celebrating the Jewish heritage of the exhibit's featured artists Perla Krauze and Barbara Liotta, the evening will include dinner featuring a Mexican-Jewish menu and stories from the history of the Jewish Mexican community. Don't miss your chance to attend this one of a kind event!

A site specific exhibit featuring the work of artists Perla Krauze and Barbara Liotta, A Dark and Scandalous Rockfall was organized by independent curator Laura Roulet. The title of the exhibit is drawn from the poem "Dry Rain" by Mexican poet Pedro Serrano, which begins: "At times the poem is a collapse/ a slow and painful landslide/ a dark and scandalous rockfall." Given the current state of U.S.-Mexico relations, this exhibition presents a healing gesture, recognizing our shared history.
