‘Mystery Nights’ brought together inspired and inspiring collectors over a private dinner in support of the Serpentine Galleries Future Contemporaries Emerging Artist Fund. In the spirit of good fun, dinner party hosts and locations remained a mystery until arrival on the night.

The evening began with a drinks reception at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, where exhibiting artist Grace Wales Bonner will give a special performance. ‘Mystery Nights’ dinner hosts will be revealed and guests will make their way to their host’s home for dinner. All guests reunited at an after-party.

Grace Wales Bonner: A Time for New Dreams

19 Jan 2019 to 17 Mar 2019

Themes of mysticism and ritual permeated Grace Wales Bonner’s exhibition, which explored magical resonances within black cultural and aesthetic practices. Taking its title from Ben Okri’s collection of essays, A Time for New Dreams (2011), the exhibition focused on the shrine as a symbolic pathway for imagining different worlds and possibilities. Over the course of one month, a multi-sensory installation and series of happenings invited contemplation and activated the gallery.
