DINNER / EXHIBITION / FUN / TALKS WITH THE CURATOR
Fotografiska opens a brilliant new retrospective by renowned British photographer Miles Aldridge, ‘Virgin Mary. Supermarkets. Popcorn. Photographs from 1999 – 2020″ with an exclusive dinner in the exhibition hall.
For the first time ever, the limited seating dinner will serve food surrounded by Miles Aldridge’s colourful and striking work – the Fotografiska chefs have created a unique menu that brings the artist’s masterpieces from the exhibition walls to the plate. Joining guests at the dinner table will be the exhibition’s distinguished curator Nadine Barth, who will share inspiring stories behind the works and exhibitions. What else is in store at the event remains to be seen…
Dresscode: Color explosion on the red carpet
/About the exhibition
A recurring theme in Miles Aldridge’s work is the false promise of luxury. His photographs depict psychedelic interiors furnished with comfort items from the American suburbs of the mid-century last century – all with the aim of expressing the success of the owner. His photographs of domestic environments are often underlined with a bittersweetness that is Aldridge’s personal reflection on childhood memories of his mother after a devastating divorce. Only rarely does he allow the real world to intrude into the imaginary – through his lens, even reality appears artificial.
The exhibition is a major retrospective of the British artist and photographer’s work, including more than 50 works shot on film and portraits of celebrities such as Sophie Turner, Viola Davis, Michael Fassbender and Donatella Versace.
Please note: Dinner places are limited, so we recommend booking early.
