Food Bigger than the Plate
Updated: Feb 13, 2020
V & A exhibition open from May 20, 2019 - October 20, 2019.
"Food connects us to each other, our culture, nature and shapes the world we live in. We depend on food to survive, but it also nourishes us is so many ways - stirring memories and feeding out emotions. Yet some of the biggest issues we face globally - from climate change and sustainability to workers' rights - stem from the way we produce and consume food.
This multi-sensory exhibition unwraps the way we grow, trade, eat, and dispose of food. It brings together creativity and innovation from artists and designers working together with scientists, chefs, farmers and communities to change how we eat and reconnect us with food. The future of food is in our hands and nothing is off the table." #plateup
