This exhibition focuses on a preoccupation with food as image and idea in contemporary culture. Going beyond the notion of still life, as redefined by Cezanne, after centuries of rich history of imagery and iconography that goes back to cave painting, Egyptian and Roman art, contemporary artists have again taken on the complex relationship of human society with that which is ingested and imbibed.
