Bus @ Blindside: Play with your Food

Craft Vic curator Nella Themelios sure is a busy lady and when she's not looking after our exhibition program - we don't know how she does it! Actually it might have something to do with the number of coffees consumed daily.

But anyhow, while some of us watch Gossip Girl in our spare time, Nella keeps busy with a multitude of independent projects. As the current Chair of the BUS Projects (a.ka. Bus Driver, haha!) Nella and artist/curator Drew Pettifer have put together Play with your Food, an exhibition and one-off dinner as part of a BUS Projects and BLINDSIDE collaboration.

Play with your Food explores contemporary spatial practices in relation to the current pop cultural interest in culinary artistry. Participating artists Matthew Benjamin, Drew Pettifer, Hannah Raisin, SIBLING and Marcin Wojcik have each devised a course of a menu that will form the basis of an exhibtion at BLINDSIDE and a one-off dinner, of which the latter is scheduled to take place next Tuesday evening at the Auction Rooms in North Melbourne!

(We're particularly excited about the dinner... mmm.. food..)

Realising the artists' contributions will be Sarah Trotter, food stylist and co-founder of the most awesome food blog Trotski & Ash.

Here are the details:

Cost: $60 per person (incl. dinner and wine)
Venue: Auction Rooms, 103-107 Errol Street, North Melbourne VIC 3051
Date and time: Tuesday 23 November at 7.30pm

An exhibition showing a video of the dinner and additional works from each of the artists will open at BLINDSIDE on Thursday 25 November from 6-8pm.
