  • Details

    Malice's Restaurant by Natalie Hutchings is the first Hennessey Experiment of The Delaware Contemporary's 2020 cycle. Hutchings explores social constructs  of history and the willingness of many to view societal ills from a distance through rose colored glasses. She creates an altered rendition of classic Americana through the window pane of the ubiquitours diner. Props such as vintage tables, tablecloths, menu boards, countertops, and fake plants set the stage to trigger memory of the sins of institutionalized racism, patriarchal abuses, and the colonial impetus that spawned and still nourishes them.
