Join FEAST for an evening of food and performance celebrating the launch of the publication Hot Pot – a collection of texts, artworks and recipes responding to the work of Anthony Burgess and his passion for food.
Occurring in the closing week of the Whitworth’s current exhibition ‘No End to Enderby’ by Graham Eatough and Stephen Sutcliffe, the meal will reflect Burgess’s lasting contemporary influence.
Using recipes found within Burgess’s fiction and served within a dinning environment featuring animations by dust collective, tablecloth designs by Marie Toseland and archival recordings of Burgess’s original music the evening presents a playful encounter with different aspects of his expansive oeuvre.
The meal marks the occasion of the publication Hot Pot edited by Laura Mansfield and Will Carr, Deputy Director of the International Anthony Burgess Foundation. The book contains new works by Melanie Jackson, Kit Poulson, Niamh Riordan & Marie Toseland as well as recipes from Manchester’s celebrated chef Mary Ellen McTague, Fairland Collective & Studio Morison. Following the meal the book will be available to purchase in the Whitworth shop.
Food for the meal is provided by The Modern Caterer and Randall and Aubin. The evening is curated by Laura Mansfield with the support of the International Anthony Burgess Foundation & Dust Collective.
