Join us again for our Monthly Dinner Series on Friday, June 6th at 8pm with Force Fed, a daring and delicious dining experience.Artist Eric LoPresti will be on hand to talk about his style, inspiration and the experiences that have led to the work in his current solo show, Force Against Force.

Previous dinners have been fun for all who attended. If you were one of those who've dined with us before, it's high time you came back for seconds. And if you haven't joined us yet, now is a great time to start! We always try to have a little something special at our dinners, so this time we'll be welcoming artist Rachel Shuman as our very special guest. Rachel will be discussing her video work Inopportune: Stage One, now on display as part of Cai Guo-Qiang's current exhibition at the Guggenheim. Rachel Shuman is an independent filmmaker who has edited several documentary feature films including Full Disclosure (2008), Sons of Sakhnin United (2007) and her own film Negotiations (2005), which premiered at the 2005 Tribeca Film Festival. She received a BFA from the California College of the Arts in San Francisco and an MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York. Rachel will be joined by filmmaker David Sampliner.

Dinner will be brought to use by chef Conor Yates, who works in Special Diet and Organic styles. Conor was trained at The Natural Gourmet Institute in Manhattan, and his meals represent the principles of the Slow Food movement, using traditions from many cultures simultaneously. We're looking forward to a fantastic meal.

R Previous dinners have been nothing but wonderful, and meals are always full of tasty, organic food with one eye on the needs of vegetarians (and otherwise). We can't tell you the menu just yet, but we can promise that it will be something that will make your mouth water, and if you're not here, you'll be wishing that you had been!
