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

Skirball Cultural Center

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

12:00pm

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.

7:00pm

Join us for a Sneak Preview of the FOX animated series, Bordertown, followed by a Q&A with Consulting Producer and Writer Lalo Alcaraz and Supervising Producer and Writer Valentina Garza, moderated by Screenwriter and Casa 0101 Artistic Director Josefina Lopez. One night only!

From FAMILY GUY’s Mark Hentemann and Seth MacFarlane comes BORDERTOWN, a new animated comedy about two families living in a Southwest desert town on the U.S. - Mexico border. It takes a satirical look at the cultural shifts occurring in America, where the U.S. Census forecasts that by 2017, ethnic minorities will become the majority. Set against this increasingly diverse backdrop, the series explores family, politics and everything in between with a cross-cultural wink. - See more at: http://www.fox.com/bordertown#sthash.5EKpH8Su.dpuf
