Petit Takett: Love, Legacy, and Recipes from the Maghreb

Skirball Cultural Center

2701 N. Sepulveda Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90049


Sharing food is one of the most genuine forms of cultural exchange. Gathered at the dinner table, we reminisce, share stories, and engage with one another. Petit Takett: Love, Legacy, and Recipes from the Maghreb, an installation and event series based on Los Angeles artist and photographer Orly Olivier’s Tunisian Jewish heritage, celebrates food as a powerful connection to the past. On view for the first time in a museum setting, the exhibition features a diverse collection of original and historic photographs, family heirlooms, ephemera, and original letterpress posters that illustrate the journey of Olivier’s family from Tunisia to Israel and finally to the United States between the 1950s and the present.
