In conjunction with Expo Milano 2015, the Triennale Palace will be the location for the exhibition "Arts & Foods" starting from April 10th till November 1st, 2015. In the interior and exterior spaces of the Triennale - about 7,000 square meters, comprising building and garden - Arts & Foods will focus on the plurality of visual language ​​and models, as objects and environmental representations that since 1851, the year of the first Expo in London, have to date revolved around food, nutrition and eating together. It is a global panorama of the interwoven aesthetics and design of eating rituals. It is also an international exhibition that uses a variety of media to offer a view across time, from the historical to the contemporary, of all levels of expression, creativity and communication from all areas of culture.

Offering a layered and multi-sensorial perspective, Arts & Foods, curated by Germano Celant, will look to document developments and solutions that relate to food, ranging from kitchen utensils to the dining table and the picnic; from the public aspect of bars and restaurants to the changes that have characterized travel by road, plane and space, to the design and look of buildings dedicated to food production and to food rituals. Arts & Foods offers an exploration of the special bond between the visual arts and the topic of food and of eating together in positive terms, both to reveal rituals and specificity, and to emphasize any idiosyncrasies or problematic areas.The exhibition will be enriched with masterpieces on loan from museums and public and private institutions, and from collectors and artists of international renown.
Arts & Foods will be organized in chronological order, starting from 1851 up to current times, interweaving testimonies of artists, writers, filmmakers, graphic designers, musicians, photographers, architects and designers. They will range from Impressionism and Pointillism to historic Avant-Garde movements, from Pop Art to the most recent findings, all contributing to how we envision and consume food. It will be a collection and a journey through time that will creatively reflect the theme of the Universal Exposition in Milan, Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life, through hundreds of books, articles and documents from museums and public and private institutions, and from collectors and artists from all over the world.

For this special occasion two famous works by Sandy Skoglund will be exhibited in the Show: "The Wedding" (1994) and "The Cocktail Party" (1992), meaningful examples in relation with the general topic.
