Imagining Food: art, aesthetics and design

 

Imagining food: Art, Aesthetics and Design regards food as more than a means of sustaining life, but as a motif that colours the patterns of life.

Tasmanian artists, researchers and educators present works in a variety of forms including painting, sculpture, photography, furniture, craft, installation and mixed media. Their interpretations of food and its social, economic and environmental impacts are fascinating, beautiful and deeply satisfying.

Art made from food, playing with food and celebrating food.

 

Curators: Dr Malcom Bywaters, Dr Kim Lehman and Distinguished Professor Jeff Malpas

Artists: Diane Allison, Jack Birrell, Karina Clarke, Joanna Gair, Neil Haddon, David Hamilton, Dorita Hannah, Marian Hosking, Meg Keating, David Keeling, Fiona Lehman, Stephen Loo, Anne MacDonald, Anne Morrison, Troy Ruffels, Yvette Watt, Kit Wise & Helen Wright and others

 

Presented by University of Tasmania
