Arts and Food. Rituals since 1851

The relationship between art and food from the time of the first Universal Exposition in London in 1851 is the theme of this exhibition curated by Germano Celant at the Triennale. Design, not just of the food itself, but also of all the rituals that go with eating is traced from the classical to the contemporary.
