Party Georgian Chair Exhibition & The Patashuri Banquet


Gela Patashuri, one of the most important contemporary artists from Georgia held a series of Georgian chair workshop at Social Kitchen last year. To cerebrate his first vist to Japan, the chair exhibition and "The Patashuri Banquet" will be carried out on May 11 at Social Kitchen!

The exhibition with moving image installation takes place on 2nd floor. The "chairs" made during the workshops are also exhibited.

In the late afternoon, there will be a cooking lesson only for singles. Gela will share his house recipe for Georgia's famous Khinkali dumpling and Feramushi.

After the dark, it's time for the banquet! (for everyone, must reserve).

Let's have Gela's special homemade wine from the country where wine originates, and cha-cha (Georgian vodka, good with Khinkali). It's the night of art, Georgian folk dance, music and good food and maybe start of a new relationship.

* A special Khinkali plate to take home for banquet participants!
