The Artist Dining Room
The Artist Dining Room was a supper club at Guest Projects where creative minds can engaged with the ideas of a well known artist through food. For each dinner a Guest Chef was invited to create a tailor made menu exploring the fundamental, social and intellectual content of the artist’s work, which is reflected through the courses of the meal. A Guest Host was also invited to lead the evening through discussion and performance surrounding the themes of the dinner. In London's East-end artistic hub Yinka Shonibare CBE's Guest Projects space is located along Regents Canal, providing a great space for creative thinkers to socialise around food.
Dinners are inspired by renowned artists and art movements. Previous dinners have included: William Burroughs, Louise Bourgeois, David Lynch, Frida Kahlo, Marcel Duchamp, Kurt Schwitters, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Salvador Dalí, Andy Warhol, Richard Hamilton, Sophie Calle, Kara Walker, Christo and Jeanne-Claude and Cindy Sherman, Francesca Woodman and Nan Goldin for International Women's Day March 2017, Derek Jarman, Leonora Carrington, and the Futurist Supper.
Proceeds from tickets sales went towards running the Guest Projects residencyprogramme.
