It is our pleasure to invite you as our guest to the preview reception for our new exhibition, 'Café Carbon', from 7-9pm on Friday 5 March as part of AV Late & Live, a special evening of AV Festival 10 exhibition previews and performances across NewcastleGateshead. Refreshments will be served.
'Café Carbon' is a musical performance that considers the consumption and production of food from pre-historic times to the present day. Gina Birch, Kaffe Matthews and Hayley Newman, aka The Gluts, performed 'Café Carbon' in the streets, bars and restaurants of Copenhagen during the 2009 Climate Summit. Wearing strangely fashionable up-cycled carbon-coloured costumes, the group invited the public to select songs from an indulgent menu including; starter (Stone Cold Soup); main (A Grand Buffet); and dessert (Sanity or Madness). At Vane, a video installation will tell the story of their extraordinary journey.
