Art proffesionals from eight different nationalities attended the gastronomic cross-culture event by Brit Es
Artists, curators, art valuers, critics, researchers and private collectors from Japan, Russia, Germany, USA, Italy, Israel, United Kingdom, and Spain participated in this gastronomic cross-culture event, held by Brit Es in the heart of Shoreditch.
Brit Es’s team, led by Carolina Núñez Roca and Vanesa Cejudo, created an event where the food menu was used as a schedule to introduce the artist’s conversations.
Last Monday, Brit Es hosted a very special event inspired by the cross-culture concept: a Supper Club created as a new way to connect with the artists and their practices. A new way to discover London’s Spanish art vibe in a new way: interacting with artists, tasting a secret menu and listening to the sound of a Steinway piano.
The event included conversations with four fabulous artists: Rosana Antolí, Gracjana Rejmer-Canovas, Ernesto Cánovas, Pablo A. Padilla Jargstorf, and a special menu created by Chef Antonio Sierra, who came from Extremadura for the event.
The Brit Es Supper Club was kindly sponsored by the Embassy of Spain in London, Bodega Soul, La Forja Restaurant and the collaboration of the Shoreditch Treehouse.

Arts Catalyst presents a solo exhibition by Ignacio Acosta, into a programme which investigates the politics of extraction across the planet.
The ecology of extractive practices is a poisonous one. In Chile as in Sámi areas in northern Sweden, mining activities by multinational corporations are both visibly and invisibly shaping the landscape, intoxicating water, soil and air while displacing agricultural and indigenous communities. The excavation, extraction and exploitation of minerals – justified by the promise of immediate accelerated economic growth – means that spaces inhabited by communities become ravaged by desertification, contamination and expropriation, and sites of political and environmental dispute.
