Notice of the exhibition

  • #botanical-art

An exhibition of botanical art works that have a special focus on edible plants, being held in cooperation with Britain’s Royal Botanical Gardens (the Kew Gardens). The exhibition will showcase botanical art that includes not only vegetables and fruits, but foods that greatly changed the eating habits of British people, such as coffee, tea, herbs and various spices. The works are accompanied by anecdotes and backgrounds on how said foods came to be incorporated as ingredients. There will also be displays of other materials related to food, such as old recipes and ceramics that decorated dinner tables, to become an exhibition that explores British history and culture through “delicious” botanical art.
