Artists’ Table includes a farm-to-table meal prepared by local chef and restaurateur Jason Weiner and features an intimate presentation by our Artists-in-Residence.
Chef Jason Weiner boasts extensive experience at many of the country’s top kitchens. Since 2001, he has served as executive chef and proprietor of Almond restaurant which opened its first location in Bridgehampton, New York, followed shortly thereafter by a second Almond outpost in Manhattan’s Flatiron District in 2008. In Spring 2018, Weiner and his business partner opened L&W Marker adjacent to Almond in Bridgehampton, offering prepared foods straight from Almond’s kitchen, local produce and Almond’s own product line.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
New York-based artist Andrew Ondrejcak works at the intersection of theatre, opera, fashion and film. He uses each medium to examine the relationships between the material world (technology, the human body, the theatrical facade) and the immaterial (history, the soul).
His work links art historical objects with contemporary iconography, often putting a queer perspective on a classical form. His work with experimental theater led him to a career in art direction and production design in the fashion industry where he is known for large-scale environmental installations. He works with Vogue, Bazaar, Italian Vogue, Wallpaper*, W, V, among others.
As a performance-maker, Ondrejcak’s works have been presented at The Kitchen (2016), BAM Harvey Theater (2015), The Public Theater in Under the Radar Festival (2014), deSingel International Arts Campus, Antwerp (2013); Holland Festival, Amsterdam (2014); Kampnagel, Hamburg (2013) and the Guggenheim Museum’s Works in Process (2011) curated by Robert Wilson. He reperformed the work of Marina Abramović in The Artist is Present at MoMA (2010). In 2017, he made a series of short films as part of a tribute to Stevie Wonder, featuring Rufus Wainwright, John Legend, Shephard Fairey and James Franco.
Since 2002, has been a lecturer at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Artist Residencies include the Watermill Center (2016), Thread (Senegal, 2017), Yaddo (2016), the Park Avenue Armory (2015-2016), Baryshnikov Arts Center (2013) and NYC’s Governor’s Island (2013).
