Dinner at the House, is an artist dinner / mediated happening with resident artists Olivier Castel, Jesse Darling, Alice Theobald and Crabtree & Evans & friends as part of 6PM YOUR LOCAL TIME (6PM YLT); a networked, distributed, one night contemporary art event, which takes place simultaneously in different locations, coordinated from one central venue, and documented online via a web application.
To accompany the exhibition The Influence of Furniture on Love, being held in Wysing's C17th farmhouse, we have invited artists Ruth Beale, Giles Round and Philomene Pirecki to host dinners that will bring some of the conversation that takes place in farmhouse during artists' residencies and retreats into the public realm. The dinners will take place in Wysing's gallery and there will also be an opportunity to visit the exhibition in the farmhouse during the evenings.
