Artists, writers, filmmakers, musicians

In 1974, Anthony McCall was one of 38 artists who participated in Jean Dupuy's "Soup & Tart" at The Kitchen in New York. In the spirit of this event, a homemade menu of soup and tarts will be served and 40 Portland artists will each perform two-minute pieces for the performance “menu."

SCREENING: SOUP & TART, JEAN DUPUY 1974-75 (shown during the meal)

"Soup & Tart" is a fascinating document of a marathon performance soiree organized by multimedia artist Jean Dupuy at the Kitchen on November 30, 1974. Dupuy invited over 30 downtown artists, musicians, and filmmakers to each give a two-minute performance. The audience was first served a home-made dinner of soup, bread, apple tarts and wine, which was followed by the performance "menu." Both the audience and performers are seen in a casual, playful mode; Philip Glass performs a percussive vocal piece, Hannah Wilke poses in a series of memorable tableaux, Gordon Matta-Clark cuts and serves a cake in the form of a house. Among the many other performers are Charles Atlas, Joan Jonas, Richard Serra and Yvonne Rainer. This document of Dupuy's freewheeling performance event is a rare time capsule of the Soho art and music scene of the early 1970s.
