Price includes drinks. Booking essential as space is limited. Maximum group booking of 4 people
First in the Museum Restaurant dinner series, Tate collaborates with London-based artist Peter Liversidge for this exciting public event. In line with Peter’s diverse practice, which invites the audience to question what is possible and where humour often plays a key role, this event starts with a proposal for the dinner. Guests join the artist in enjoying a menu of specially selected recipes across four generations of his family with food from loyal suppliers in Lincolnshire, Turkey, Tower Hamlets in London and Essex amongst others. Peter is closely collaborating with Tate’s chefs in preparing and serving this bespoke three-course meal including home-made lemonade and mint tea.
As a guest, you are participating in a realisation of a proposal, the meal and surrounding guests. A copy of the proposal as a certificate of the piece is given to each of the guests to take home. The evening will also include a personal selection of musical tracks and shared stories from the origin of each recipe.
18.30 Private view of Meschac Gaba’s Museum of Contemporary African Art
