On Friday 18th October, The Artists Dining Room at Guest Projects invites you to an unforgettable evening, exploring the extraordinary work of American Artist Faith Ringgold, in the setting of a 1970's hot Harlem jazzy rooftop night.

For this unique occasion, Ringgold's long-time friend and American Contemporary Art Gallery (ACA) gallerist Dorian Bergen as well as chef Karl Gritton and set designers Ibrahim Cissé and Imann Gaye will collaborate to create a unique dining event celebrating Ringgold's work, the surrounding Black Harlem culture of the time.

Jazz-infused music will include live performances of Ringgold's songs and guests will have a chance to interact with the novelty of Faiths creations while dining on a 3-course Soul Food inspired menu, under a recreation of the Harlem night sky.

Faith Ringgold took inspiration from her own childhood in Harlem. Much of her art explores social and political themes and features powerful women, especially African American women.

“All you need is somewhere to go you can’t get to any other way. The next thing you know, you’re flying among the stars.”
