The word 'Company' originates from the latin 'Con Panis' meaning 'With Bread' – the time honoured act of gathering socially to share food. The word's etymology and context has evolved into the present to mean, quite simply, a pleasant time spent with others. Ephemeral Dinners seeks to re-enact this basic human instinct of gathering company, over food, with the added dimension of a providing a stimulating talking point. Art.
1. THE EXHIBITION
The exhibition aims to help promote the undiscovered talent of emerging Artists.
If you are inspired to purchase an artwork that's great, but there's no pressure to do so. It's about enjoying and sharing an evening with art lovers, creatives, and likeminded people.
The duration of the exhibition is limited to one night only. There is no date of the beginning or the end of the exhibition, but it is the exhibition.
The dinner is created and prepared by two passionate artists who enjoy the pleasures of food. The first one is an unknown artist whose works are on show. The second artist is established. The dinner itself is an artwork due to the dialogue of both artists. In today's age of reproduction, the artist's dinner is a unique experience.
The dinner is limited to 20 people and is an exclusive experience.
Since food is art, you are invited to be the witness of the collaborative act of creation by two highly skilled artists. The creation is just as ephemeral as the exhibition itself. One night, and it's gone.
The dinner will be followed by a cocktail reception with a friendly treat! We would like to invite a maximum of 50 friends to enjoy the after dinner cocktail reception and private view.
5. LOCATION & DATE
An Ephemeral Dinner will be held each time at a new location.
