Wicket Leeks আড্ডা / Adda with Jess Rolls and Zaid Islam 

আড্ডা / Adda is a Bangla word. Its closest translation would be to hangout, typically with cups of teas, and can go on for hours without end, sitting around and talking. During this আড্ডা / Adda we will hear from Jess and Zaid about their 2+ year collaboration exploring the complexities of corporate and national empire explored through the histories of tea, cricket, and chilis.

Collaborative Beer Making Workshop  with Gil Lopez and Jonathan Sims

A homebrewing beer workshop with both theory and philosophy of collectivity and living cultures. The beermaking workshop will happen concurrently with the Wicket Leeks আড্ডা / Adda.

Zaid Islam is a Queens based artist working with exchange economies including snacks and beverages. He is also interested in the requirements around food safety, and what we do when asked to engage with an “unsafe” food, investigating ideas of trust and intimacy. Zaid shares his food table, which offers homemade food and drink, or items prepared in Bangladesh which the artist carried to New York, in exchange for a negotiated offer.

Jess Rolls is an independent public art curator and artist with a social practice. Jess shared her recent project Open Studio, which, commissioned by NYC Parks, created a one-day ceramics studio in Central Park, hosting clay-based collaborative making, round table discussion and live throwing on a kick-wheel.

Gil Lopez is a Community Cultivator, Artist, Eco-Educator, Landscape Designer/Builder and Urban Farmer. Gil is one of the co-founders of Smiling Hogshead Ranch, an urban farm collective fostering healthy culture and community, and food and environmental justice in Long Island City.

Jonathan Sims is a New York City based visual artist who originally hails from Texas. His visual arts practice is characterized by brightly colored geometric abstractions and simple, minimalist symbology that evokes language and universal, ancient design.
