Tastes Like Sunshine

Brisbane's culinary culture gets its own art exhibition.

A word of warning before attending the Museum of Brisbane's latest exhibition: you might want to have something to eat first. If you don't prior, we're betting that you'll be making a beeline to a cafe afterwards. Looking at food-inspired artwork tends to get the stomach grumbling, after all.

At Tastes Like Sunshine, Brisbane's culinary culture is thrust onto a platter and served up for the cuisine and creativity-loving masses, endeavouring to challenge audiences' ideas of traditional still life, food and art mediums. Artists Elizabeth Willing, Sean Rafferty and Carol McGregor have used food as a stimulus to create new, multi-sensory pieces, using everything from possum skins and produce boxes to chocolate and marshmallows in the process.

And, they've stepped into the heart of the city's food scene — spending time with local chefs, hanging out at the Brisbane Markets and working with the local Aboriginal community. The trio's works are joined by a photo series by Jo Grant that documents gardens created by some of Brisbane's migrant residents, plus a pictorial history of sugar farming and production in the region, as well as a look at our food markets.
