In case you thought Frieze was the only art fair shaking up London town this October, think again. The Moniker Art Fair returns for its sixth year at The Truman Brewery on 15th October. If you fancy a side order of delectable food and drink with your art then avert your lips to Assemble London’s collaboration with Patron – The Art of Patrón Cocktail Cantina.
The pop-up will be bringing a visually stunning dining and gallery experience each evening during the fair, pairing cutting-edge contemporary art with premium, innovative Mexican street food and Patrón-inspired custom-made cocktails. As a leading contemporary art fair with its roots embedded in urban culture, the walls of the cantina will exhibit canvasses by Nick Walker, one of the UK’s graffiti pioneers and leading stencil artists. Walker’s sophisticated and highly intricate works will be a perfect accompaniment to the carefully curated food and drink menu.
The cantina’s ceilings will be brought to life with three exclusive chandeliers designed by multidisciplinary artist,Lauren Baker. Having created bespoke mosaic installations for art institutions including the V&A, Tate Modern and Tate Britain, Baker has been given complete creative freedom to design chandeliers that will include the iconic Patrón bottles. These feature chandeliers and canvases will also be on sale at the fair.
The Art of Patrón Cocktail Cantina, Friday 15th – Sunday 17th October. Tickets will include five dishes and five miniature Patrón Tequila cocktails and are priced at just £25. Guests to Art of Patrón Cocktail Cantina must have a ticket to Moniker Art Fair priced at just £5 if purchased with an Art of Patrón Cocktail Cantina ticket. All purchases to be made at Billetto.
