I know I'm in the minority, but I confess: I don't like Nando's. Nothing about it appeals to me, and the one time I had it to try it, I wasn't converted.
Regardless of whether I actually like Nando's or not, this cheeky bit of PR pushed out by Nando's caught my eye - an art gallery in a Nando's? Interesting. What I am keen to learn though is exactly *why* Nando's is doing it. Is it to try to appeal to a broader audience set? I understand this is the second year running it's doing this, but I just can't quite figure out why Nando's would sponsor artists in the first place. I like the 'Feast Your Eyes' play, I like that Nando's is trying to make art more accessible, but I still don't get the 'why'.
Perhaps it's one to ponder over a peri-peri chicken.
A flame-grilled half chicken with two regular sides may already be akin to a work of art for some, but Nando’s is looking to expand its diners’ cultural horizons even further. Nando’s Notting Hill will be turning itself into an art gallery for three days next month, allowing punters to enjoy a cheeky portion of peri-peri alongside a painting or two. The Feast Your Eyes exhibition will showcase the work of five South African artists – Asanda Kupa, Audrey Anderson, Diana Hyslop, Emma Willemse and Sebastian Borckenhagen – and will be free to view for visitors to the restaurant.
