Further Information about the Exhibition

The Wolfsonian–Florida International University presents Modern Meals: Remaking American Foods from Farm to Kitchen, an exhibition that explores how technology and design remade the places where food was produced, sold, cooked and eaten from the turn of the century into the post-1945 period.

Images and artifacts from the Wolfsonian collection illustrate the movement of food from the field, to the factory, supermarket, and kitchen table, in order to explore how modern technology, design, and business practices created new meanings for food and eating in this era.

The more than three dozen items on display will include posters, prints, and advertisements, as well as objects such as toasters, cookware, and tableware, all of which invite visitors to consider how commercialization has shaped modern American foodways.
