Open (C)all 2021: Food and Memory

February 6 – June 6, 2021

Virginia MOCA invited Hampton Roads artists of all ages to create works of art exploring food and memory.

Food memories are powerful, involving all five senses, and often evoke feelings of nostalgia. We remember more than just the food; these memories can bring strong associations of a person, place, time, or event. The preparation of food or the experience of eating can become symbolic.

Food connects us. It brings us together, shapes our identity, and creates understanding.    

We would like to thank all artists who participated in this exhibition for sharing their creativity and memories with us.
