Images of food are pervasive; we are constantly bombarded with pictures of what people are eating, what food we should buy, what food will do for us or to us. This exhibition will showcase a range of representations of food and eating from within the museum’s collection, and explore the relationship food has with mental health, wellbeing, morality and identity.
