I was approached by Vanessa Carlos to exhibit some of my taxidermy headpieces as part of the Ron Arad exhibit at the Barbican a while back...
They are putting on a fantastic "Mad Hatters Tea Party" to celebrate Arad's obsession with hats. This will be held in the Garden Room, and will showcase my headpieces as well as a range of magnificent culinary delights by concept chef Caroline Hobkinson.
Now, I don't know if any of you guys made it to the Viktor & Rolf exhibit events... but the doll themed tea party they threw for that was A-MAZING. Tons of cake and tea and incredible costumes, and and... and from the sounds of it this will be of an equally high standard--- especially seeing as Vanessa put that one on as well!
So here's the plan:
Snatch up your craziest/favorite hat, skip over any time during the day and see the Ron Arad exhibit. At 6:30pm, hop on over to the Garden Room for a peek at some "unbelievable taxidermy head wear" (the Barbican's words not mine...) and to sample some incredible canapés. Stay for another look at Arad's work and wind down the remainder of the night (until 10pm) at the Tom Foulsham and Valentin Vodev designed mobile Absolute Vodka bar!
Did I mention tickets to all the above fun and games are FREE with a ticket to the Ron Arad show?
So no excuses! See you there with your best hat(s) on!
