AWE Gallery

LUNCH is an exhibition that embodies all things pop – pop culture, pop design, pop fashion and pop aesthetics. Showcasing nostalgic flashbacks to lunch in North American visual culture, collections of archival objects borrowed from The Henry Ford Museum and private collectors give viewers access into an era. From vintage and historical lunchboxes, dating back to 1885, black and white photographs of cafeterias, diners and hot dog stands, a mod-style Campbell’s Soup Can “Souper Dress” from the 1960’s to the installation of a diner table set for lunch in the context of a pop shop, the exhibition stages the ways in which food becomes a signifier for the commodification of culture.
