Nicole’s TV dinner U

We are very happy to present our first ever supper club featuring home cook & London based artist Nicole Coson. Nicole’s “TV Dinners” (IG: @nicolestvdinners) is a delicious experiment in casual Sichuan dining —fiery, mouth numbing “ma-la” matched with the devilish mien of Westworld’s Doctor Ford on a reclining couch! For one night only, she will be hand pulling noodles and dumplings to be enjoyed paired with a surprise film screening. Vegetarian and gluten free options will be available. 

Menu:

Egg marinated in black jasmine tea
Tomatoes marinated in Chinkiang vinegar
Twice cooked pig’s ear in numbing spices
Sea bream crudo, green Sichuan peppercorn oil
Mapo tofu with soy cured egg yolk
Belt noodles with shallot chicharron
Braised beef shank dumplings in broth

Science Fiction Theatre: Miracle Mile (1988) 15

When Harry (Anthony Edwards) meets Julie (Mare Winningham) at the La Brea Tar Pits, it’s love at first sight. But when Harry’s alarm clock fails to go off, he misses their scheduled date by several hours. Alone on a street corner at four in the morning, he answers a ringing pay phone and picks up a garbled message that all-out nuclear war is set to begin in an hour’s time. With the clock ticking and the city spiralling into chaos, can Harry somehow track down Julie and get them both to safety before Armageddon?

____________

101 Movies to Watch Before You Die Launch and Freaks Screening 15

Join us and Nobrow for a very special evening with illustrator Ricardo Cavolo, celebrating the launch of his brand new book, 101 Movies to Watch Before You Die. Taking the form of a diary, the book is a love story told in 101 episodes. Accompanying his vibrant, distinctive illustrations with thoughtful descriptions of each movie, Ricardo takes us on a personal journey through the films that have shaped his life and the lives of his generation.
 We invited Ricardo to personally select one movie from his top 101 for the occasion… and he chose Tod Browning’s brilliant 1932 film Freaks, calling it a “milestone in his life and career”.
Ricardo Cavolo on Freaks (1932):
“I’m more interested in showing how different people love and laugh than in the revenges they exact. And that’s what Tod Browning shows us. His great clan of people have all been unceremoniously rejected from society, but are taken in by the travelling circus family. In the safety of their new home, they forget all about the so-called ‘normal people’ who ridicule them and they become one big happy family. They’re magical.”
Fresh off the plane from Spain, Ricardo will be introducing the film with a short talk about himself, the book, and why Freaks means so much to him. Ricardo will be signing books after the screening, and you’ll also pick up a free set of temporary tattoos of Ricardo’s illustrations with every purchase of the book.
About Ricardo Cavolo
Born in his father’s painting studio, Ricardo Cavolo has grown up surrounded by art and is now one of the most influential and successful illustrators to come out of Spain. His influences range from outsider art to medieval paintings and tribal art. Cavolo’s work has been exhibited in solo shows across Spain, as well in Montreal, Miami, Basel and London. His distinctive and recognisable work can be seen on everything from José Cuervo tequila bottles to Alexander McQueen scarves and Kaytranada album artwork to murals all around the world. He is also the author / illustrator of 101 Artists to Listen to Before You Die, published by Nobrow in 2015.
