DINNER WITH JONAHAN TRAYTE AND FEAST
Wednesday 5 October, 6.30pm until late, £25pp
Artist Jonathan Trayte (whose work can be seen in our current exhibition Polyculture until 9 October) and FEAST journal editor Laura Mansfield come together to create an evening of food and performance, celebrating the launch of the latest edition of FEAST on the theme of decoration.
The evening will unfold around a series of sculptural assemblages. Comprised of a number of small courses, diners will be encouraged to interact with the assembled dishes, pouring, spooning and catching food on their plates.
Throughout the meal interventions will be made by artists Rachel Pimm and Rachael Champion amongst others, playfully deconstructing the formal dining environment and providing food for thought.
Booking in advance is essential – email Reception@TheTetley.org or phone 0113 320 2323
EXHIBITION OF EXPERIMENTS & IDEAS
THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD
21 October – 15 January 2016 (Preview 20 October, 6-8pm)
CO-CURATED BY AMELIA CROUCH
The Scientific Method showcases recent artists’ moving image works which take the format of performative lectures, quasi-scientific demonstrations or experimental actions. These artists question how we make sense of today’s information overload, from post-truth politics to mind-boggling quantum and nano-science.
This exhibition brings together reconfigurations of recent work, historic works and new commissions including co-curator Amelia Crouch’s new film, Spectral Evidence (shown and told), about colour perception and colour language. Combining research into the evolution of the eye and the physics of light, the film takes colour as a case study to investigate the cultural and biological limitations of our everyday experience.
