Clara is an artist, writer and producer based in Brooklyn, NY. She was born in Italy to Argentine parents, and owes much of her love of food to this happy coincidence. She first learned to cook sitting on a stool in her abuela’s kitchen on Calle Tejeda in Córdoba, and from there it was a short step to writing, curating and hosting esoteric dinner parties.
By day, she is the Director of Marketing & Events for the DUMBO Improvement District–where she develops creative programs in the neighborhood’s public spaces with and for the benefit of its residents, businesses and cultural organizations–and makes time-based art with her collective vvitalny. Say hi over at ¡dpm! does.
