The worlds of food and art often collide – think of the level of theatre that Heston Bulmenthal brought to mainstream dining a few years back, or the dedication to certain foodstuffs involved in recent art sensation Colourful Shit. More rare, however, is when they work together in perfect harmony – though the guys at FEAST are hoping to change that with their next event in July. Basing their evening around the pursuits of Jacob Cartwright and Malachy O’Connor, the former will bring the culture, the latter the cuisine. Based in Manchester, Cartwright has worked with the likes of ICA London, Kunstmuseum Bonn and Musée du quai Branly Paris, working alongside fellow artist Nick Jordan. On the other hand, O’Connor set up his much lauded barbecue business Fire & Salt after returning from studying at the best fire pit barbecues and now spends pretty much every weekend doing pop-up versions of his delicacies at festivals and events around the North West. On the evening, diners can expect screenings of works filmed at the confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi rivers, accompanied by a three courses including marinated meats, tobacco-smoked fishes, seasonally spiced fruit pies and a collection of regionally appropriate beers, cocktails and spirits, especially selected to accompany the ambiance (and flavours) of the event. We’ve been advised that this will sell out, so be quick.
