This exhibition includes the work of artists who reference chocolate, either directly or indirectly, as a medium or subject matter, to explore issues of cultural, social or historical interest. Some of the issues addressed include: the history of chocolate, social implications of chocolate, the complexity of globalized food production and distribution, food processing (additives, genetic alterations), and the representation of chocolate in popular culture.
