And, catch the Pittsburgh premiere of Lorna Mills’s Ways of Something, Parts 1–4, a film remix for the internet age featuring work by 125 digital artists. Mills was recently selected to showcase her artwork Mountain Time/Light across Times Square video displays every night in March for Midnight Moment.

The February 12 FEAST event is inspired by CMOA’s current exhibition The Propeller Group: The Living Need Light, The Dead Need Music, a spectacular visual and musical journey through the fantastical funerary traditions of South Vietnam. The lush and colorful video features rituals that resonate with funeral traditions in New Orleans and other parts of the “global south.”

For this FEAST, CMOA welcomes acclaimed New Orleans–based chef Michael Gulotta to create a meal that fuses Vietnamese and New Orleans cuisine. Dinner includes an open bar cocktail hour with hors d’euorves, a family style meal with wine and beer pairings, and admission to the FEAST After-Party. Dinner menu highlights include cane syrup-lacquered duckling; black bean gumbo with blue crab, jumbo shrimp, and roasted okra; and coconut milk glazed whole roast hog. (The full menu is subject to change.)

After-Party tickets are also for sale as a stand-alone ticket, and features traditional Tết celebrations and Vietnamese street foods by Chef Gulotta and a cash bar. Tết, the Vietnamese Lunar New Year, celebrates the arrival of spring and good wishes for the next year.

Dinner: 6–9 p.m.

Chef Michael Gulotta of MOPHO, New Orleans

About Chef Michael Gulotta: Born and raised in New Orleans, Michael Gulotta began cooking in local restaurants at age 17. After graduating from the Chef John Folse Culinary Institute, he joined the newly opened Restaurant August under Chef John Besh. Gulotta then took leave to train in the Italian Riviera and Germany’s Black Forest. When Hurricane Katrina hit, Michael returned home to help rebuild and assist with August’s re-opening. He was named Chef de Cuisine in 2007 and led the award-winning kitchen for six years, while establishing relationships with local farmers and purveyors. He opened his first restaurant, MOPHO, in January of 2014. Located in New Orleans’ Mid City, MOPHO strives to be a true neighborhood restaurant and a destination for Southeast Asian-inspired cuisine utilizing the Louisiana pantry. In its first year, MOPHO was nominated for America’s Best New Restaurant by Bon Appétit magazine and named “Restaurant of the Year” by New Orleans magazine.
