Votes needed for your ultimate “dish”
- Credit: Archant
Residents are being asked to cast votes in a national competition so Hackney Museum can host a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work with world famous local artist Yinka Shonibare.
If the museum in Reading Lane wins, anyone who voted in the Museums at Night, annual Connect! competition can submit a recipe for their ultimate “dish” – which could be for food, a good night out, a perfect day or anything else which shows what Hackney means to them.
Yinka will then pick his favourite ‘recipes’ and invite the selected residents to a ‘supper’ club event at Hackney Museum in October.
Guests will receive their ‘dish’ in the way the artist has chosen to interpret their recipe, and the group will work with Yinka to create a collaborative installation representing the ultimate Hackney ‘dish’ to express what Hackney means to them.
Nigerian born Yinka Shonibare MBE is well-known for his works including Nelson’s Ship in a Bottle, a scale replica of the ship HMS Victory which was displayed on the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square in 2010.
