On Wednesday, 25th April, Maria Teresa Salvati, with Mariona Otero, Tina Remiz and Kitty Walker, produced the IV edition of Slideluck London, which took place at the two-floors trendy gallery in the heart of Shoreditch, 81 Leonard Street. Many people were involved from all around the world.
London-based curators managed the theme of ‘Gender and/or Identity’, with Fiona Rogers selecting the female submissions and Harry Hardie selecting the male entries. Erica McDonald (NY) made further selections for DEVELOP Tube, and GUP Magazine (Amsterdam) featured some of the selected stories on their online magazine with interviews and portfolios. Blurb supported the show by offering vouchers to all who submitted their work, and by awarding the best story with a generous gift card. The prize for best story was ultimately awarded to Pierfrancesco Celada.
The potluck was outstanding too, offering a selection of cuisines from all around the world! Food editor Regan Maloney awarded the best dish and a runner-up with a hamper and a feature in her blog. The winners were homemade rhubarb with black pudding tart and Vietnamese spring rolls. The food looked amazing in the palm leaf plates and eco-friendly tableware kindly supplied by Little Cherry, and Olea House premium extra-virgin olive oil helped to enhance the taste of some dishes. The wonderful Brooklyn Brewery beers worked enliven everyone’s mood and truly endorse the spirit of Slideluck! All in all, it was a great success.Posted on
