Mon 20-May-2019 @ 18.30 - AVM CURIOSITIES: FOOD, ART AND HISTORY


Tasha Marks

Tasha is an award-winning food historian who explores the relationship between food, art and history. Her practice, AVM Curiosities, champions the use of food as an artistic medium, with projects ranging from museum- style exhibitions and sculptural installations, to interactive lectures and limited edition confectionery.

AVM CURIOSITIES: FOOD, ART AND HISTORY.

Tasha’s company, AVM Curiosities, bridges the worlds of food, art and history. Her clients include the V&A, the Royal Academy of Arts, the National Gallery and the Barbican and her talk will review her unique position in the cultural landscape and her distinctive projects.

With a strong emphasis on storytelling and history, the talk will comment on how to introduce the senses into the museum space, the rituals of eating and why sugar was one of the original artistic mediums.
