'Arts & Foods. Rituals since 1851': A pavilion in the city entirely devoted to the arts in relation to food

Culture / Germano Celant
Arts Foods Celant img rif e cover

Exploring a world of art detached and disconnected from its environment is unthinkable. Thus Expo 2015 in Milan has chosen to follow tradition by including an event devoted to art, but not just an exhibition this time. Rather it is setting aside an entire pavilion, which has found its home in the Milan Triennale. The project aims to present an investigation of art and food, treated as a territory for analysis of the social and cultural factors that have conditioned the arts in relation to food produced all over the world. Entitled Arts & Foods. Rituals since 1851.
