M Restaurants will be hosting an evening of Art In The Frame And On The Plate with the talented and acclaimed artist Miles Aldrige, to coincide with Frieze London. The evening will be an artistic and gastronomic experience not to be missed.
Miles Aldrige will delight diners with the stories behind his celebrated artworks, several which in fact hang in M. Guests will also be treated to an array of delicious dishes which can only be described as art on a plate prepared by M executive chef Michael Reid and wines to match which also in fact feature art on their labels.
Miles Aldridge is known for his twin obsessions, woman and colour. His work is filled with glamorous, beautiful women from dazed housewives and decadent beauties to sunbathing sexpots and ecstatic Virgins. The technicolour dream world of seemingly perfect women with blank expressions belies a deeper sense of disturbance and neurosis.
Born in London in 1964, Aldridge studied illustration at Central St Martins, and briefly directed music videos before becoming a fashion photographer in the mid-90s. He has published his work in many influential magazines including Vogue Italia, American Vogue, Numéro, The New York Times and The New Yorker. His work was showcased in Weird Beauty at the International Center for Photography in New York in 2009, and he has works in the permanent collection of the National Portrait Gallery and the Victoria & Albert Museum
Last winter saw the arrival of a unique dining and drinking concept in the heart of Londons City. Situated on the iconic Threadneedle Street, home to the Bank of England, M is an innovative and versatile 15,000 square foot space. M is the first solo project from Martin Williams, who left his role as Managing Director of Gaucho Restaurants after almost a decade with the company, to establish his own restaurant group. M is due to open a second venue before the end of this year in Victoria.
