Dinner is Sterned

Celebrating the interior spaces that have played a fundamental and historical role to key South African artists’ careers, the inclusion of IRMA STERN’s DINING ROOM in collaboration with the Irma Stern Trust and Museum celebrates the artist, collector, traveler and entertainer. The installation features personal memorabilia, artefacts and artworks from the artist’s estate and invites the viewer to engage with a more unknown genre of religious themed paintings.

Join us for a unique sensory immersion and culinary experience curated by Food Artist Caro Jesse. Delve into the life of Irma Stern through her famous dining room, set inside the ‘Nature Morte – The Still from Life’ exhibition.

Experience a three course menu paired with wine, where the various countries, scenes, people, flavours, and stories Stern experienced, are reflected.

This will be an exclusive event and for one night only.
