A Dinner Inspired by Poet Etel Adnan at The Artist Dining Room in Hackney


The Artist Dining Room is a regular series of dinners that take place at the Shinobare Studio in Hackney, E8, near to Broadway Market.  On Friday 28th February 2020 the dinner is in honour of artist & poet Etel Adnan, specificaly focussing on one of his poems, with the four courses of the dinner inspired by the work.   Menu here .

"On Friday, 28th February, The Artist Dining Room at Guest Projects invites you to explore the celebrated poems of renowned Lebanese painter, Etel Adnan.  
Rather than beginning with Etel Adnan’s visual work, the dinner will take its starting point in Etel Adnan’s 1980 poem, The Arab Apocalypse. Guest Host and artist, Sophia Al-Maria will be leading the guests through the text course-by-course and verse-by-verse in a series of live readings and videos recorded in the many languages Adnan speaks by contemporary artists who have been inspired by her words. 
There will be pearl divers and black suns and cosmic sailboats and firing guns. Expect a simple feast of plenty. Four naturally elegant courses studded with the glyphs Adnan peppers throughout her poem. 
The unfolding of this meal encourages us to not just hear the words but to listen to them. And to not just eat the food, but taste it!"
