Art and dining make a fine pairing

August 19, 2014

The white brick walls of Hedge Gallery proved a fabulous foil last week as Quince chef Michael Tusk welcomed gallerist Jessica Silverman and her “White Is the Warmest Color” exhibition during week three of cur/ATE.

“This is more difficult than hanging a show in my gallery,” said Silverman, dazzling in an all-white ensemble topped by a sparkly silver jacket. “Because people are dining amid the works, I had to rethink where I hang the art and make sure everyone has something intriguing within their sight line.”

This five-week pop-up that fuses fine dining (a different Tusk menu each week) with fine art (curated by a different gallerist each week) continues in its fourth week through Saturday with supper amid a show curated by John Berggruen. The final week (Aug. 27-30) concludes with a “Far Away” exhibition by gallerist Iwona Tenzing.
