Known for pushing the boundaries of humour and artistic practice, internationally-acclaimed artist Olaf Breuning comes to Drake One Fifty to celebrate his site-specific installation in the current Anamorphose exhibition. Most memorable for his 2014 Public Art Fund-commissioned Clouds site-specific installation in New York's Central Park, Olaf Breuning draws inspiration for his playful, often non-sensical art from pop culture references. He creates photographs, films, sculptures, and installations that combine contemporary aesthetics with primal urges—sexuality, and companionship—and the resulting work is often both absurd and hilarious. Breuning says, "Well, I would like to be perfect, but I think art shows me that whatever technology I use, my personality pushes through and there we are... something is not perfect. I like that. We are finally human."

For Public Art Fund's 2015 Benefit, Breuning created two limited-edition plates inspired by the "faces" he sees in food, which were originally images from his Instagram feed. Photo courtesy of Artsy

The $45 three-course prix fixe dining experience includes a starter choice of either Drake Salad or Beets + Blue Cheese Salad, a main course choice if West Side Salmon or Creste de Gallo (no rabbit) or St. Canut Sucking Pig, and a desert choice of either Cheesecake-Choux or Sundae.
