To celebrate the birth of the EDIT Dinner Prize, in its spaces EDIT hosted the first Edit Dinner Party. A prelude to the artist’s dinner the first winner created at Artissima 2019, the Dinner Party this year was coordinated by Massimo Bartolini in collaboration with Costardi Bros., the award-winning chefs-in-residence at the EDIT Restaurant. The project was organised with evening dinners seen as sequential chapters of a single story, each with the participation of 60 guests who discovered the event’s characteristics only through direct experience.
With its spaces, people and philosophy, EDIT established a close dialogue with the artist for the production of a collective happening opened to a limited number of guests. An artistic project that revealed how food, its preparation and consumption could become a metaphor of social interaction. A game of different disciplines that put human relations at its centre, also providing food for thought about the present. A dinner transformed into an artistic and personal experience.
The artist’s dinners took place on 2 and 3 November at 20.30.
