Today, Art Dubai revealed details about ‘The Wedding Project’, a new performing arts exhibition that will transform two rooms in Madinat Jumeirah into artist-created wedding halls for the tenth edition of the fair. The experience will include an eleven-course menu created by artists including  Sunoj D, Larissa Sansour, Candice Lin, Manal Al Dowayan, Taus Makhacheva, Nile Sunset Annex, Hind Mezaina, and the Centre for Genomic Gastronomy.

As Aaron Cezar, Director of Delfina Foundation, explains, “The theme of the ‘wedding’ plays on the marriage of food and art, while also considering the context of the venue at Mina A’Salam in rooms where weddings are typically held. We will forage for food with Sunoj D, eat dishes on the verge of extinction with Larissa Sansour, calm our nerves with Manal Al Dowayan’s special tea blends, and have our cake — and perhaps eat it too — with Taus Makhacheva’s twist on the traditional wedding cake. These are just a few of the experiences for the project and performative dinner.”
