LateRooms.com - Enjoy the Eating the Universe exhibition at Kunsthalle Düsseldorf
January 16, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsLateRooms.com can announce that anyone who has booked rooms in Düsseldorf hotels may want to pay a visit to the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf to take in the Eating the Universe Food in Art exhibition.
This unusual collection of sculptures and paintings featuring food in addition to a number of installations created with edible materials, it is an experience not to be missed on a visit to the city.
Running until February 28th, there is still plenty of time for any art lovers to combine a passion for food with a trip to Düsseldorf.
It is based on a selection of seminal works by Daniel Spoerri, a Swiss artist who coined the term Eat Art to describe pieces made with and involving food.
One section of the gallery is devoted to the history behind the concept, which is where Spoerri's work is displayed, while the main part of the venue features more recent examples of installations utilising edible materials.
According to the museum's website, this is a particularly timely exhibition given the global focus on issues related to food - including famine compared with obesity and the western world's obsession with diets and food crazes.
The museum is open from 11:00 local time to 18:00 Tuesday to Sunday and entry costs €5.50 (£4.91).
To make the most of the Eating the Universe exhibition – you should consider booking your hotel Düsseldorf to avoid disappointment.
