Candles for 'Feast of the Red Herring' at Moderna Museet Malmö.

An event and concept by artist and pedagogue Francis Patrick Brady.

"Imitating the concept of a “secret society dinner”, occult club, or medieval feast, the ‘Feast of the Red Herring’ stages a secret dinner where 14 people are invited to discuss topics surrounding secrecy and transparency; it creates a place where the roles of ordinary society may be reversed or temporarily lifted.

Over a dozen artists have been invited to create and imagine every aspect of the dinner setting itself: the table, plates, cutlery, pots, placemats, cups, menu, flowers, masks, food, attire, toasts, sounds, and smells!"

Involved artists:

Kah Bee Chow, Desmond Church, Sam Conran, Ingrid Furre, Martha Hviid, Maria Norrman,

Olof Nimar, Petter Dahlstrøm Persson & Felix Dahlstrøm Persson, Tine Maria Damgaard,

John B McKenna, Max Ockborn, Lucia Quevedo, Wilfred Wagner, Albin Werle.
