Event Details

An integral part of Tashkeel’s annual exhibition programme is an open call exhibition addressing a theme of timely relevance to society and the world in which we live. So, in January 2022, Tashkeel called upon artists and designers living and working in the UAE to submit artworks and design pieces in all mediums that explored issues around the philosophy of food through a wide range of interpretations, whether literal or abstract.

In a place that currently imports 80 per cent of its food, can we ever become a self-sufficient society, able to nourish ourselves while preserving the natural resources around us and reducing waste? Will such a major shift restrict the way we live or give us greater autonomy, enabling us to realise a vision where the true agricultural and culinary potential of this country is fulfilled?

A monumental shift is required in the way we approach food; how we source it, prepare and consume it. So how do we change our thoughts as well as our actions? Where do we begin? Technology will provide countless solutions for the future, from climate-proofing land agriculture to bio-designing aquaculture. It will help us identify alternative proteins and other new sources of nutrition. Yet it is us who require the greatest inquiry of all to truly change. Today’s sustainable food movement is global. Unled yet inspirational, it requires us to be more reflective on food, our values and choices, living by principles based on the importance of science, the recognition of restriction and the need for wholesome sustenance.

We must adopt, adapt and embrace a new philosophy of food.
