Eat Your Art Out: An Edible Art Experience


Hot on the heels of her fabulously successful "Dessertslands" in WOAP (Wellington On A Plate), the talented Caitlin le Harival returns to the New Zealand Portrait Gallery with a new foodie experience created especially for the gallery:

Eat Your Art Out: An Edible Art Experience

Step back in time to an edible world of art inspired by Poutokomanawa: The Carmen Rupe Generation and Jaqueline Fahey’s Suburbanites.

 To celebrate the final night of these fantastic kiwi exhibitions there will be a range of retro treats inspired by the artwork on display. Sip on some “sly grog” and take yourself back to a time when late-night coffee bars covertly sold unlicensed alcohol hidden in teapots or coffee cups. Taste a melting fondue sculpture, create your own edible art and eat from the walls in this interactive art experience-all while enjoying your own private viewing of the exhibitions at the New Zealand Portrait Gallery.

Indulge your childhood memories and have a taste of this unique one-off experience.

*Included in the ticket price are two alcoholic beverages. Further alcohol will be available for purchase on the night.

Tickets are strictly limited and availble through Eventfinda here.
