Recently Gertrude Contemporary Art Space held its annual Gertrude's Table Dinner, for Gallery patrons, writers and artists alike. As a roped in and voluntary staff member I got to experience first hand this event hosted by local artist Ryan Foote.
The theme of the dinner was Black, the food served was white and thus the waiters dressed to match. Guests dinned off a gold catwalk-like table, drank themselves into oblivion and barely touched their snow white dessert of marshmallows. A young magazine editor was a stand out in Martin Margiela. Apparently finding the shoes on sale for 99 Bucks. The dinner may have ignored the recession, but her style budget didn't.
