Dishy Artworks – It’s a Birthday Party!

6-8pm, Tuesday 24 February 2015

It’s a sticky caramel trickle, easing down dark chocolate backdrop. You want to taste it with your fingers. But you can’t. It’s a painting. Maybe, just maybe, this time you can.

To celebrate The New Church Museum’s second birthday, we are delighted to announce a new collaboration with Caro de Waal, founder of Eat Design. With a playful edge, she will create a sensory art and food experience that will delight and excite the mind and the palate, inspired by works on our current exhibition Thinking, Feeling, Head, Heart curated by Marilyn Martin.

The engagement will be sophisticated, elegant, light-hearted and mischievous. If you know about food you will leave the experience with an intimate understanding of the most esteemed and notorious abstract artworks in South Africa. If you know about art, you will have the opportunity to devour the artworks that you know so well, for the first and only time.

In November 2012 The New Church Museum, South Africa’s first contemporary art museum, opened its doors to the public. We are continuously invigorated through collaborations with South Africa and Africa’s leading curators, artists, thinkers, cultural commentators, and wine connoisseurs, finding innovative ways to engage with and enjoy the art of our time. And so it continues with this fabulous birthday taste experience designed by sensory food curator Caro de Waal.
