Join artist Rirkrit Tiravanija and Chicago-based artist Dan Peterman for a casual serving of Mislabeled Invasive Vine Tea on June 4th at 61st Street Market. The plant, Celastrus orbiculatus, commonly known as Asian Bittersweet, produces a mild, pleasant tea and has a long history of medicinal benefit and use. But imported to North America more than a century ago, it wreaks havoc in local ecosystems, while being frequently mislabeled and still sold by plant distributors.

Mislabeled Invasive Vine Tea is hosted by Wrightwood 659 and Peterman Studio in the bustling environment of Experimental Station’s 61st Street Market. The program is free and registration is not required.
