I Wanna be Close to You: Art, Intimacy and Our Obsession with Eating

Since Rirkrit Tiravanjiya cooked some curry for gallery-goers in the 1990s, contemporary artists have been increasingly interested to feed, share and exchange food obsessions with their audience. At the same time the restaurants scene and celebrity chef craze continues its upwards stratospheric orbit. Art and food have been friends for a long time. So what’s new? Why now? And is it delicious?

Hosted by Director, Forest Fringe: Andy Field.

Next Wave Artists: Robin Hungerford (Organic Shamanic Contemporary Cuisine), Lara Thoms and Jodie Whalen (Fresh Produce)

International speaker: Harun Morrison (Fierce Festival) Guest speaker: Susan Gibb (curator)

Breakfast Club

Kickstart your brain with a dose of stimulation courtesy of Next Wave. Breakfast Club is your morning shot of artistic and intellectual insight. We’re not interested in expert-led formats or a room full of people thinking the same things; we want big opinions, good discussion and personal stories.

Light breakfast by Yoghurt Culture and coffee from Small Batch by donation.
