Food For Thought: Visual Arts Exhibitions Fall 2015 says
Join us to celebrate the opening of our fall visual arts exhibitions!

From September 26 to December 24, Harbourfront Centre presents five exhibitions and more than 27 artists exploring food in all its complexity. From the celebration of the meal to food politics, these exhibitions explore our relationship to the food we eat.


Public bake ovens are popping up all over our city as part of a growing movement to activate parks and other public spaces to bring communities together. A tandoor oven will be up and running during our opening night celebration where guests will be invited to learn about a particular cooking culture and sample a tasty snack!
