Tastes Like Sunshine

WHEN : 18th August - 12th November
WHERE : Museum of Brisbane

Tastes like Sunshine explores the flavoursome side of our city’s character and reveals its rich and evolving food story through contemporary art, personal stories and historical documents, and images .

Featuring exciting new artwork and installations by acclaimed artists Elizabeth Willing, Sean Rafferty and Carol McGregor, Tastes like Sunshine engages all five senses in an interactive experience that will challenge your pre-existing notions of food.

How we engage with food is a reflection of our culture, background and aspirations. Our region’s Aboriginal food culture and the influence of immigration have impacted not just our city’s food palate, but how we live. This mouth-watering exhibition will explore the rich history of our city’s iconic produce markets, Brisbane’s pivotal role in launching the state’s sugar industry, and how the introduction of new crops had domestic cookers experimenting with new methods and creations.

For a limited time only, experience food in a new light and get a taste of Brisbane like you never have before.

Tastes like Sunshine is complemented by a dynamic program of speakers, Good Food Club events, gardening workshops, maker series and children’s activities.
