Occasions hosted by Isabel Lewis

Berlin based performance artist Isabel Lewis hosts ‘Occasions’ - “evenings where she entertains guests and all their senses. Using music, food, smells and designs, she creates a unique experience for people to relax and enjoy, eat and drink, as well as participate if they like.” Isabel creates a space where the ritualistic, the sensory and the sensual are presented to ‘guests’ as tangible offerings. Curated by Scot Cotterell and designed by Juan Chacón. OCCASIONS: 7 - 11 June, 6 - 9PM // DECOR: 8 - 25 Jun // LOCATION: Contemporary Art Tasmania // A FREE EVENT
