The Way We Eat
3 April 2021 - 14 June 2022

The Way We Eat brings together works of art related to food. 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. There was a changeover of some exhibits in early August.
