Napoleon Salon: Dinner in the First Empire

napoleon_on_his_imperial_throne

Dilettante Army and Thank You for Coming extend an invitation to dine with them on Saturday evening, the fourth of February, at six o’clock in the evening.

This dinner, inspired by state banquets of Napoleon Bonaparte in his Tuileries palace, will facilitate group discussions about the court of the First Empire and explore how art functions under an authoritarian regime.

Napoleon Bonaparte, a combative, proud, and popular leader, came to power in November of 1799, backed in a surprise coup by fellow reformists looking to make France great again. Over the next 15 years of his reign, he ruthlessly campaigned to extend the French empire, establishing his family members as dynastic rulers of his newly-won assets. Napoleon was a master media strategist: he wrote bulletins to publicize his victories, commissioned favorable newspaper coverage, censored all anti-government voices, and produced propaganda on a massive scale. He especially relied on the spectacle and luxury of the imperial court to consolidate his new position in the world. Funded by the spoils of conquest, his ever-expanding government payroll employed artists and workshops that created statues and paintings of the emperor as well as decorative pieces marked with his personal brand. In this salon dinner, we will discuss the pageantry of the Napoleonic Empire and the people who produced it. Who were they? What did they make? How were they paid?

We will strive to answer these questions over a six-course meal punctuated with brief presentations and trivia rounds.

The six-course menu includes the following (offered with exclusions but no substitutions, and subject to change):

Gougères
Tomato consommé
Salmon in hollandaise with asparagus
Lemon sorbet
Medallions of beef in sauce espagnole with haricots vert
Green salad
Assorted pastries

Optional readings that will be relevant to our discussion are available on Dilettante Army (www.dilettantearmy.com/napoleon-salon).

Tickets to the dinner are available for $55 and can be purchased below.

For this Rebellion: the Faux Fraus want you to learn how to use a t-shirt for the production of casserole and bowl covers, coasters, coozies, post holders, and shopping bags. Due to the fast fashion production of t-shirts, used t-shirts are a natural textile resource, which can be used for just about anything.
 
The Faux Fraus will take over the back table of Thank You For Coming and along with you, will sew, sew, sew away. There will be a limited brunch menu (that still includes your favorites) available during this event. Thank You For Coming is proud to host the LA chapter of the Sewing Rebellion. We pledge to train to be leaders of the Sewing Rebellion, and to emancipate our neighbors from the chains of disposable fashion.

In Your Factory, Are the Doors Locked?

frauwithshirtwaistblouses

Friday, March 25
8 am – 8 pm: Production Shift
8 pm – 9:30 pm: Dinner, shirtwaist blouse sale and reflective conversation
 
Please stop by and see Frau Fiber and the Faux Fraus anytime during this 12-hour production shift to commemorate the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire or join us for dinner afterwards.
 
One hundred and five years ago on March 25, a fire spread through the cramped Triangle Shirtwaist Factory’s 8th, 9th and 10th floors of the Asch Building in lower Manhattan. Workers in the factory, many of whom were young women recently arrived from Europe, had little or no opportunity to escape. The rapidly spreading fire killed 146 workers. The public outcry over what was clearly a preventable tragedy brought a renewed sense of urgency to the labor movement and to other groups working to improve women’s and immigrants’ rights in the workplace. While the American workplace has changed radically, conditions in the global garment industry have not. Bangladesh, the new capital of fast fashion, and Pakistan have seen the following disasters:
 
April 24, 2013: 2013 Rana Plaza building collapse. An eight-story factory building collapsed on the outskirts of Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, and killed 1129 people.
 
November 24, 2012: Dhaka Tasreen Fashions fire. A seven-story factory fire outside of Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, killed at least 112 people, 12 from jumping out of windows to escape the blaze.
 
September 11, 2012: Karachi, Pakistan, 289 people died in a fire at the Ali Enterprises garment factory, which made ready-to-wear clothing for Western export.
 
As a reminder of continued labor abuses in the garment industry and in honor of the workers who have died for the production of cheap fast fashion for companies such as H&M, Forever 21, Walmart, Target, and Gap, Frau Fiber and the Faux Fraus will sew for a 12-hour shift, producing replicas of the Shirtwaist Blouse. In 2011, Frau Fiber cut these blouses from Los Angeles garment factory remnants. Each year, on the anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, Frau commences with this commemorative production in an attempt to complete 146 blouses.
