Artists' Cookbook: Book Launch

Fri 11 August 2017

Artists' Cookbook explores the cultural contexts and rituals surrounding cooking and eating. Whether dining alone, with friends or in the vicinity of strangers, the act of eating represents a marker of performed identities. Throughout the book, a focus on cooking and eating as a cornerstone of communal relations is explored via artist contributions. They reflect upon the unusual forms meals can take, their role as a site where community is performed and their ability to produce ritual in everyday life.

Contributions have been gathered by from a network of friends and colleagues including Mathieu Arbez, Frida Froberg, Ryan Gander, Leo Jasperd Plomb and Elodie Merland. Also included is an interview with Adam Sutherland, Director Grizedale Arts and an introduction by Miranda Vane (artist and food historian).

Artist and cook, Claire Dearnley, will prepare and serve recipes from Artists’ Cookbook.

Please note that this event will be filmed. If you do not wish to be filmed, please speak to the event organiser or a member of CCA staff on the evening.
