The exhibition “Food for Thought” features a series of 23 oil-on-canvas paintings by the artist, Bruce Thurman. This exhibition takes the form of an “illustrated cookbook”, carrying viewers on a journey of exploration through the variety of recipes found across Europe. Its purpose is to showcase Europe’s rich and various food cultures, on the one hand, and to explore the diversity and similarity found in European food culture, on the other.
The timing of this exhibition is ideal in that it allows the breadth of European cultural diversity to be showcased as part of the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage.
The exhibition is linked to the work of the Temporary Study Group on Sustainable Food Systems, in the EESC’s NAT Section and to the work done by EMAS and Catering Service.
