Artist Michèle Lamy played host to a one day only event that titillated all 5 senses at the Barbican gallery, featuring Afro fusion dishes and a soundtrack for the day created by UNKLE founder, musician and curatot James Lavelle mixed live at the event.
Our very own editor in chief Karen Binns was lucky enough to be in attendance… see her take on the event below…
