Art Dubai and Delfina Foundation revealed details of The Wedding Project, a new performative project that will playfully transform two rooms at Madinat Jumeirah into an artist-created wedding hall for the tenth edition of Art Dubai, March 16-19 2016. The experience is open to all, throughout the fair, and also features a series of eleven-course gala dinners. The project is supported by Absolut Elyx with further support by ROI Land Investments, Ltd and The White Boutique.
Curated by Delfina Foundation Director Aaron Cezar as the latest iteration of the popular ‘Politics of Food’ series, The Wedding Project combines novel drinks and food dishes, commissions and interventions by artists including Sunoj D, Larissa Sansour, Candice Lin, Manal Al Dowayan, Taus Makhacheva, Nile Sunset Annex, Hind Mezaina and the Centre for Genomic Gastronomy.
It presents a pop-up project, bar and banquet hall that mixes continuous offerings of food and drink with seated, time-based performative meals. This unique project includes commissions, interventions and novel dishes and drinks created by the artists.
