Join us for a special pop art themed American feast, inspired by the work of the artist Roy Lichtenstein.

During the evening you will have the unique opportunity to meet Iria Candela, the co-curator of Lichtenstein: A Retrospective at Tate Modern, and engage in an informal question and answer session inside the exhibition. Candela will also give a brief introduction before you enjoy dinner in exclusive space of the East Room offering impressive panoramic views of London.

Lichtenstein: A Retrospective is the first full-scale retrospective of this important artist in over twenty years. Co-organised by The Art Institute of Chicago and Tate Modern, this momentous show brings together 125 of his most definitive paintings and sculptures and will reassess his enduring legacy.

With an exclusive private view for dinner guests, this will be a perfect evening for lovers of art and food.
