Normal drinks and our daily bread

Lappeenranta Art Museum, Lappeenranta

  • 1.6.2024–1.9.2024

The theme of the exhibition is food and drink in the history of Finnish visual arts from the early 19th century to the present day. The exhibition illustrates various phenomena related to food and drink as viewed through Finnish visual arts.


The themes of the works include the acquisition and production of ingredients, such as agriculture, hunting and fishing, and the food and drink themselves, which have traditionally been portrayed in various still lifes. Themes also include restaurants, cafs, culinary culture(s), food trends, and ethical issues related to food and drink, insofar as these themes have been dealt with in Finnish visual arts. The exhibition has been compiled of the museums own works, works borrowed from other museums and communities as well as artists.

The exhibition is linked to the Saimaa European Region of Gastronomy year, which will be celebrated throughout 2024. Three regions in eastern Finland form the Saimaa European Region of Gastronomy region. In the jubilee year, the region will be the centre of European food and cultural tourism, and the aim is to link food with art and culture in surprising and interesting ways. The official website of the jubilee year is available at www.tastesaimaa.fi.
