On Food & Memory
In what ways does food eaten by individual bodies, feed our collective memory?
Rasha Tayeh explores this question in an audio-visual exhibition documenting intimate stories about food histories and traditions shaping people’s memories.
Memories hold significance on a deeply personal level, and at the same time, construct the rich tapestry of social life. This exhibition explores the ways food is connected to culture and identity, how it is used in rituals and forms sensory memory.
Celebrate food, culture and culinary history in a nostalgic reflection of food, secret recipes and family traditions.
OPENING: Saturday 18 June, 2pm – 3:30pm
EXHIBITION: Thursday 16 June – Saturday 2 July
VENUE: FCAC Gabriel Gallery
