Explores how food is made, consumed and celebrated, and how the rituals of eating define our lives and times
The Way We Eat
3 April 2021 – 2022
Lower Asian gallery
Art Gallery of NSW
The Way We Eat brings together works of art related to food – that ancient source of inspiration, pleasure and anxiety. It considers what we eat; how food is made, stored and consumed; the evolution of culinary wares; cultural exchange; and the ritual and symbolic meanings associated with food.
Combining historical treasures with dramatic contemporary artworks, the exhibition is drawn from the Gallery’s extensive Asian art collection and loans from private collections.
