The Dinner Party Revisited is artist Katherine Araniello’s most audacious, ambitious and large-scale live work to date: a cacophonous, chaotic soiree for audience and guests alike at two London venues, simultaneously.
This new LADA publication draws together documentation of the event in the form of photographs, creative responses, first-hand accounts from performers and a feature length edit of the performance on accompanying DVD. Also included are critical and reflective essays on Katherine’s work to date by contributors Lois Keidan, Marcia Farquhar and Aaron Williamson.
This publication launch event will include presentations by Laura Dee Milnes and Marcia Farquhar; a discussion with Katherine Araniello; and screenings of a selection of films by Katherine.
Katherine Araniello makes work that is uncensored and uncompromising. She is skilled in exploiting disability and taking it to areas devoid of sentimentality. www.araniello-art.com
The evening will also launch The Dinner Party Revisited film as the third title to be shown in the new LADA Screens series of online screenings of seminal performance documentation, works to camera, short videos, films and archival footage. It will be available to view for free on LADA’s video channel for two weeks between 9 and 23 September 2015.
