Guest Projects' Artist Dinner for Marcel Duchamp, near Broadway Market

The Artist Dining Room is a regular event that celebrates artists through food.  On Friday 1st August it will honour French artist Marcel Duchamp with a dinner that includes dishes inspired by his work, created by guest chefs Banquet and artist Doug Fishbone.  Tickets are just £36.50 for this very memorable night.

"Yinka Shonibare MBE's project space Guest Projects joins creative forces with London-based chefs to hold a series of sensory tingling supper clubs which will be much more than just a feast for the palate, but for the eyes, ears, imagination and beyond. The Artist Dining Room supper club at Guest Projects opens a space where creative minds can engage with the ideas of a well known artist through food. 

Our Summer supperclub holds an evening of Dadaist fantasy, inspired by French artist Marcel Duchamp (along with his alter egos Rrose Sélavy and R.Mutt). Guests will indulge in a French influenced 4-course meal created by Guest Chef BANQUET; taking your palate though an exploration of the world Duchamp's mind for the evening. Guest Host artist Doug Fishbone will lead guests through an evening of humour, satire and performance to uncover the life and works of Duchamp.

Marcel Duchamp was born July 28, 1887, in France. After the sensation caused by �Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2 (1912), he painted few other pictures. He became famous for his "ready-mades" and heralded an artistic revolution. Associated with the Dadaist and Surrealist movements Duchamp broke down boundaries between works of art and everyday objects. Largely ignored during his lifetime, he was in his 70s when he emerged as master whose entirely new attitude toward art and society changed the future of visual arts.
