> DESCRIPTION

You are what you eat. This exhibition—the catalyst for an accompanying festival of activities presented by thirty partnering organizations—celebrates and explores the role that food plays in our lives. The agricultural bounty of our region has brought waves of immigration (Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Mexican, Vietnamese) and shaped a rich history of cultural diversity, which today we share in part via food. From food trucks to molecular gastronomy, food helps define the Bay Area’s communities. 

Every time you sit down to eat, you make choices. In today’s world, food has social, economic, and political implications. Food is charged with pleasures—and with meaning.

Around the Table unfolds in three stages at SJMA this fall, and extends far beyond the Museum’s walls. In conjunction with this expansive project, SJMA is also piloting a new, integrated arts-education initiative, “Sowing Creativity.” And some thirty partner organizations are participating in the extensive community festival of food, creativity, and community. Activities include gleaning tours, farm visits, performances, and exhibitions.
