Tour of THE WAY WE EAT Exhibition

by Exhibition Curator Cao Yin

'Southern beauty' 2019, by Li Jin (China, b.1958); AGNSW

The Way We Eat brings together works of art related to food – that ancient source of inspiration, pleasure and anxiety. It considers what we eat; how food is made, stored and consumed; the evolution of culinary wares; cultural exchange; and the ritual and symbolic meanings associated with food.

Combining historical treasures with dramatic contemporary artworks, the exhibition is drawn from the Art Gallery of New South Wales’ extensive Asian art collection and loans from private collections.

As Curator of Chinese Art at the Art Gallery of NSW, CAO YIN has been making exciting acquisitions as well mounting important exhibitions of Chinese art. Apart from curating exhibitions drawing on the Gallery’s collections, she has organised for the Gallery significant exhibitions from other museums, for example Heaven and Earth in Chinese Art, Treasures from the National Palace Museum Taipei (2019), Tang: treasures from the Silk Road capital (2016) and A Silk Road saga: the sarcophagus of Yuhong (2013). In previous roles she co-organised the inaugural exhibitions at the Arthur M. Sackler of Art and Archaeology at Peking University and the new lee Kong Chian Art Museum at the National University of Singapore.
