12 Tablecloths Opening Reception and Artist Talk

August 13

Join the Center for Colorado Women’s History and artist Chloé Duplessis on Saturday, July 13th for the 12 Tablecloths Opening Reception and Artist Talk. This event is free, but capacity is limited so advance ticket reservation is recommended.

12 Tablecloths is an immersive art experience that offers an Afro-futurist re-imagining of a Southern dining table informed by plantation life practices of the late 1800s.

Inspired by a decade of research anchored in the history of domestic service, early American culinary traditions, and the ideology that birthed the United States, 12 Tablecloths respectfully presents lesser known truths about our shared history, and leverages them in pursuit of an authentically inclusive future.

12 Tablecloths is on exhibit July 13th through September 30th, 2024 at the Center for Colorado Women’s History in Denver and can be experienced with purchase of a General Admission ticket to the museum.
