A feast for the eyes: Harvest opens at GOMA

This past Saturday, we were lucky enough to attend the opening of Harvest – the latest exhibition at The Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) which celebrates all things art, film, and or course food.

Harvest explores the influence of food in art throughout history and features over 150 works from the Gallery’s collection ranging from ‘golden oldies’ from the 1600’s to contemporary pieces by Tracey Moffat, Shirana Shahbazi and Xu Zhen.

The opening weekend was full of flavour with chef demonstrations, artist discussions, wine-tasting from Yering Station and plenty of  opportunities to sample the latest GOMA Bistro and Restaurant menus – like this tasty legume risotto with rabbit ham…

And this amazing dessert sampler platter (don’t worry it was shared with Braking for Breakfast too!).


The exhibition itself is great for a wander, and whilst it might not draw the same crowds as Cai Guo-Qiang’s Falling back to Earth, there is certainly something for everyone.

My favourites were the ‘Pineapple Express!’ installation that welcomes you into the Gallery, the giant fruit mural by Shirana Shahbazi and the walk through ShanghART Supermarket. Jemima Wymans Pattern Bandits at the Children’s Art section is also great fun for for kids of all ages, so don’t miss it!

Harvest is open daily from 10am-5pm until 21 September 2014, so choose a date and mark it in your diary…and don’t forget to treat yourself to some of the amazing cuisine on offer!
