Food For Thought

AN Exhibition curated by John Thorogood

24th  March – 16th April 2009

What does ‘Food for Thought’ mean to you?
 A metaphorical expression, denoting thought-provoking issues and topics, it can also be interpreted in a literal, or playful, punning sense. If you are an artist with a political or spiritual theme to express, you may wish to explore moral, social or cosmological issues insofar as they invite reflection. How can your art convey ideas of fairness, equality or infinity? You may, on the other hand, want to consider the more concrete concept of ‘food’ – gastronomy, aesthetics, eating behaviour, the digestive process, etc. Yet again, you may see a way of confronting both metaphorical and literal interpretations of ‘Food for Thought’, and explore thoughts arising from e.g., famine /over-indulgence, the morality of food production, fads and allergies, etc. We have invited a group of artists to respond to it.
