The Way We Eat brings together works of art related to food. Drawn from the Art Gallery’s extensive Asian art collection and loans from private collections, the exhibition 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.
