The opening of the new student exhibition The Key Ingredient: Food in Social Relationships, will be marked by a reception at the Institute this evening.

Exploring how humans use food in social situations The Key Ingredient investigates not only how food can be used to forge personal relationships, but how it has been employed as a vehicle for power.

The temporary exhibition created by MA Museum Studies students will be displayed in the A.G. Leventis Gallery of Cypriot and Eastern Mediterranean Archaeology until May 2014.

The Museum Studies programme provides a broad academic and professional training in all aspects of museum work, whilst encouraging students to reflect critically on the concept of the museum and its associated practices and provide students with the theoretical and practical knowledge needed to set up, develop and deliver an exhibition project in a museum setting.
