The Best Food Events and Exhibitions in London 2019
1. Exhibition: Food Bigger Than The Plate
Where: The Victoria and Albert Museum
Price: £17.00 per ticket
Inviting visitors to participate, taste and debate, this bold exhibition explores current experiments at every stage of the food system – from compost to table.
From gastronomic experiments to urban farming, this exhibition brings together the politics and pleasure of food to ask how the collective choices we make can lead to a more sustainable, just and delicious food future.
2. Summer Pop Up: Patch & Picnic
Where: Patch & Picnic, 78 Waterloo Bridge SE1 9PX
Bask in the warm sum with a picnic platter and drinks on the Southbank. Book into the games area for a session of boules, beach tennis or Swing-ball, while enjoying a refreshing G&T or glass of bubbly. And if picnics aren't your thing, you can always sneak off to the BBQ Club pop-up next door for a burger and craft beer. It's the perfect way to spend a sunny weekend...
3. Exhibition: Tender Touches
Where: AMP Gallery
Blurring the lines between the gallery, the studio and the dining room, Tender Touches will host a series of talks, supper clubs and performances, taking place among new commissions by a group of international emerging artists.
Guests will be invited to engage in a multi-sensory experience through the artworks as everyday objects, and to engage with food as they might view art. By encouraging a multi-sensory experience, the exhibition dissolves barriers between the audience and the art, while exploring the overarching themes of the body, flesh and physical boundaries.
