Artists' curated participatory environments and performances will include the "special recipe" performed by Baby Ikki with a live score by Mike Kelley, a "furry" performative environment by Marnie Weber, and a musical performance by Jim Shaw, among other surprises. The menu will be specially conceived and prepared by Suzanne Goin of Lucques.
