In partnership with Vanderbilt University’s Office of Community, Neighborhood, and Government Relations, the Frist Center presents “Food for Thought,” a three-part series of lunchtime conversations with Vanderbilt professors, Frist Center curators, and other members of the Nashville community. During the first two sessions, panelists will focus on the exhibition World War I and American Art and explore how the conflict shaped art as well as global affairs. The last session, inspired by the exhibition Nick Cave: Feat., will delve into how contemporary performance art can offer powerful and transformative opportunities for communities.
