The Art of Food :: MGNSW
Imagine if we paired food with art in the same way sommeliers pair wine with cuisines. While this may seem implausible and over-engineered, a new openness for food culture to be part of galleries and museums is driving increasing co-location of art, culture and food. From the humble coffee cart to boutique dining experiences, food culture is playing a growing role in our cultural spaces. Whether it’s a match made in heaven or a relationship of convenience, the combination of art and food culture provides new opportunities for visitor experiences. David Walsh’s Museum of Old and New Art exemplifies the high-end companionship between art and culinary experience with wine bars, restaurants and cafes servicing the gallery space.
Thriving cafes adjoining gallery spaces are found at the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre, Tweed Regional Gallery, Hazelhurst Regional Gallery & Art Centre, Campbelltown Arts Centre and the Penrith Regional Gallery to name a few. Despite the many success stories the art and food partnership is not necessarily an instant fast track to increasing gallery and museum patronage. Sydney Living Museum’s Rouse Hill House and Farm, 45km northwest of the Sydney CBD, recently held their Autumn Harvest festival which exemplifies thoughtful integration of the cultural and food experience. That said, the food and art alliance is not without its detractors. Concerns about gallery and museum spaces being overshadowed by food and café outlets and consequently detracting from those institutions as venues for creative engagement and collaboration, have been voiced.
These concerns appear insignificant when weighed against the potential for food and café culture to normalise regular gallery visits and engagement, opening up a future where coffee with friends at the gallery, and a walk past the new exhibit is an everyday occurrence.
