Artfully photographing a meal is not only a recent foodie fad, but taps a long history of feast and famine imagery. Connecting contemporary interest in cuisine with the rich tradition of still life in art, this exhibition of prints, drawings, photographs, and paintings from the Davis Museum collections serves up an opportunity to consider how representations of food reflect cultural ideas about consumption in different eras.

Curated by Mazie Harris, former Linda Wyatt Gruber ’66 Curatorial Fellow in Photography

This exhibition is generously supported by Wellesley College Friends of Art at the Davis.
