The Jasper Project presents The Supper Table

Special Limited Run Installation: February 11 – 18th

The Supper Table, an homage to the 40th anniversary of Judy Chicago’s 1979 epic feminist art exhibition, is a multidisciplinary arts project celebrating the history and contributions of 12 extraordinary South Carolina women and featuring the work of almost 60 of South Carolina’s most outstanding women artists in the visual, literary, theatrical, and film arts.

Imagine a 12′ x 12′ x 12′ triangular-shaped table set with SC-artist-created place-settings each inspired by one of 12 diverse women from SC history whose lives were dedicated to the betterment of humankind.

Around this table 120 tiles, each naming another great SC woman and decorated by a community member, hang on movable walls in an Array of Remarkable SC Women.

Now, listen to essays about each of these women written by SC writers and staged orations theatrically presented by SC theatre artists.
All of the artists are women, and all call South Carolina home.

Finally, watch 12 short films, each featuring one of the honored guests at the table and created by a SC filmmaker.
