Dinner Session: Nina Marte Wilson
Grab a chair and join us for an inspiring evening carefully balancing delicious meals and enlightening conversations. Diverse menus prepared by talented guest chefs and new encounters with others, there’s always something new at our Dinner Sessions.
Inspired by Gordon Matta-Clark’s artist-run restaurant FOOD, which flourished in New York in the 1970s, The Grey Space invites artists and food enthusiasts to come and cook affordable meals as a form of artistic and social expression. Each Dinner Session is a unique experience, with a different guest chef preparing a special menu according to their own concept brought to our kitchen. These Sessions, which encourage communal dining, inspire people from all walks of life to connect and celebrate the joy of being together over food.
Celebrating two extremes, Nina serves a black-and-white menu. She brings them into the Grey Space, together, on a plate. She also invites you to dress in black and white, stating “Meet me in the middle and I’ll see you there”.
The three-course menu is completely vegan, and starts off with celeriac soup with sumac. For the main, Nina Marte Wilson prepares a wide array of mezze, including: beluga lentil salad with grapes and feta; marinated eggplant; black rice with black olives, za’atar and yoghurt dressing; flatbread, roasted cauliflower; and white bean dip. She serves black sesame cheesecake for dessert.

Nina Marte Wilson (1998) graduated in 2022 as a performer and visual artist from the Institute of Performing Arts, Maastricht. There, she moved her focus from the theatrical to more visual work, without letting go of the performative aspect. She works with video art, live performance, photography, installations, and animation. Lately, she has been combining food and performance and has been experimenting with the ritual of dining: turning food into sculptures and treating ingredients as pieces of art. She celebrates vegetables and fruits and combines them with surprising (edible and non-edible) elements.
For our Dinner Sessions, we’re always looking for cooking enthusiasts, artists, or other humans with a passion and talent for food. Feel welcome to reach out to us! Some experience with preparing food for – and serving to – larger (30+) groups is required.
