Additional venues to be added.
We eat every day, but how often do we really think about the food we eat? Every culture has its celebrations, family meals, traditions that involve food. Although these vary in different parts of the world, the impact of food is unmistakable. Food nourishes and fuels our bodies; food traditions nurture our souls.
So, what inspires you about food?
This exhibition will allow artists to explore any aspects of food that they find inspirational - from a single piece of fruit, to a still life, to the family table, to the significance of food in culture and the celebration of family milestones and religious holidays. Artists may portray how and where food is grown and harvested; how it is sold or distributed, prepared or consumed; where it is abundant and where it is scarce.
SAQA intends to choose approximately 30 pieces for the exhibition.
