Grey Goose Iconoclasts of Taste introduces ‘Food and Art Through the Ages’ at the V&A

This September, to coincide with the London Design Festival, conceptual food artist Tasha Marks will give an interactive lecture on ‘Food Through the Ages’ at the V&A Museum, sponsored by the Grey Goose Iconoclasts of Taste project.

Marks is known in the foodie world for her mission ‘to challenge the way we perceive food by presenting it as art'. She organises specialised events that focus on the curious side of the food world, from edible hair to electric daisies.

The ‘Food Through the Ages’ talk will take place on Monday 16 September at the V&A, from 4-5.30pm. It will cover the history of food as an artistic medium, starting with 13th-century sugar sculptures and winding its way to 3-D prints of desserts and beyond. Marks will accompany her lecture with edible examples to illustrate her points.

Tickets to this interactive lecture cost £10; to book your tickets, visit the Grey Goose Iconoclasts of Taste website.
