Food nostalgia looks at food in contemporary America through a lens of fast food iconography and industrial food production. Participating artists variously draw on popular cultural references, brand recognition, bodies, memory, nostalgia, and playfulness. They ask us to think about our relationship to our colonial pasts, feminist thinking, cultural diversity, and marketing culture. The corporatisation of our food systems is deeply entrenched in our psyche; historical and contemporary trade routes of our food affect our cultural landscape. As a framework to explore how we cook, eat, and consume, food nostalgia will be a platform to share ideas, and food.
