Behind the scenes: a glimpse to the exhibition’s design process

The exhibition EatDrinkPrint will be presented as a window display at Central Saint Martin’s Museum and study collection window gallery. The opening event will try to recapture the dinners of the print societies in London from the Twenties to the Seventies. It would hold a discussion with print and politics experts over food and wine. Save the date: Monday 28.4 at 5:00 pm.

The window display has been conceived as a “behind the scenes” of the dinners and lunches that were hold by print societies and clubs. it was a sphere for networking, especially focused on develop individual careers and lubricate business.

When the idea came out we thought we may display lunch noise through an artificial mess during preparation and table settings. Starting from this point our work has been focused on finding objects related to the dining table: dinner set, table cloth, chandelier, wine bottles and wooden boxes, ceramics, everything for recreate a convivial atmosphere.

On top of these objects we would display the most important archive materials, such as pictures, menus, newspapers and more.

We are getting into the real production stage now and it is interesting to see how our idea be undertaken. You are all more than welcome to come and see it.

 

Oh, just one more thing: free food on the opening night. Do we need to say more?
