An exhibit about New York food that first opened in the Victoria & Albert Museum in London has been transported and revised to make its debut this week at the Museum of the City of New York, a co-presenter of the show. The emphasis is on issues like sustainability, labor, access to food and the food chain and covers three major themes: production, trade and what’s on the plate. The themes are illustrated with creative works by more than 20 artists and designers. Several special programs requiring registration are also scheduled, some with a fee.
“Food in New York: Bigger than the Plate,” Sept. 16 through the fall of 2023, $20 for adults, $14 for those 65 and older, and students, members free, Museum of the City of New York, 1220 Fifth Avenue (103rd Street), mcny.org.
