Exhibition | ’New National Dish: UAE’

  • VENUE: Warehouse 48

New National Dish: UAE is a scenario planning proposal consisting of a set of stories, recipes, tasters, and flags detailing four directions the national dish (and by extension the nation) may take due to the environmental, economic and social impacts of climate change. In this forecasting piece, the artist collective from Center for Genomic Gastronomy imagines the elements of a New National Dish for the UAE based on the principle concept that eaters shape the Earth through the foods and stories we celebrate, cultivate, and propagate. Over the next 30 years, our recipes will adapt to ecological challenges, political and economic uncertainty, and changes in supply chains. How, in turn, will these elements of the food system change based on our new preferences, tastes and stories?

The exhibition opens during Quoz Arts Fest. During 24 & 25 January, stop by for a taste of future food systems for the UAE.


Free and open to all.
Location | Warehouse 48

The exhibition, produced by Alserkal and inspired by FOOD: 'Bigger than the Plate' at the V&A, has been generously supported by the British Council, DCMS and GREAT through the UK-Gulf Culture and Sport programme.
