The Key Ingredient: Food in Social Relationships

The Institute of Archaeology’s new student exhibition, The Key Ingredient: Food in Social Relationships, opens to the public from 10 May 2013.

The temporary exhibition created by 16 MA Museum Studies students will be displayed in the A.G. Leventis Gallery of Cypriot and Eastern Mediterranean Archaeology for an entire year. 

Exploring how humans use food in social situations The Key Ingredient investigates not only how food can be used to forge personal relationships, but how it has been employed as a vehicle for power.

The exhibition showcases the latest UCL research into this field and questions how changes in society have altered our eating habits. Featuring objects sourced from museums across London, this interactive exhibition is a thought provoking experience.

The Key Ingredient: Food in Social Relationships

The exhibition is linked to Eating Identities, an event hosted at the Science Museum’s Dana Centre, which questions our perceptions of body image and invites visitors to try the food of the future.
