AVM Curiosities:Food ,Art and History Tasha Marks Wednesday 08 May 2019

Join award-winning Food Historian and Artist Tasha Marks as she discusses her company AVM Curiosities. Bridging the worlds of food, art and history Tasha’s work ranges from museum-style exhibitions and sculptural installations, to interactive lectures and limited-edition confectionery. 

With clients including the V&A, The Royal Academy of Arts, The National Gallery and the Barbican, Tasha’s talk will review her unique position in the cultural landscape, touching on each of her distinctive projects and discussing the highlights of each one. As well as a strong emphasis on storytelling and history, the talk will comment on how to introduce the senses into the museum space, the rituals of eating, and why sugar was one of the original artistic mediums.
