Pied à Terre launches programme for emerging artists

London restaurant Pied à Terre is launching an annual residence programme for emerging artists called Artist in Restaurant.

The two-Michelin-starred restaurant on Charlotte Street will select one artist every year who will be paid £10,000 to create at least one work of art which will become a permanent fixture in the dining room.

The first artist will be selected next month by a panel of experts headed up by Pied à Terre owner David Moore (pictured) from a shortlist of 12 put forward by a nomination panel of renowned curators.

From January the selected artist will then be invited to spend time at Pied à Terre both as a diner and behind the scenes and then exhibit their work in the restaurant from September to November.

"Pied à Terre has ongoing relationships with some of Britain's best contemporary artists, many of whom have given us great support over the years. "Artist in Restaurant is the perfect opportunity for us to give something back and to support the next generation of artists," Moore said.
