Food is Culture launches today at Bahrain National Museum

A creative project which sees chefs and artists collaborate will launch at the Bahrain National Museum (Sunday January 26).

Food is Culture, now in its fifth edition, sees the pairs create a product in a range of mediums, whether that is a painting, installation, cake, drink or video (or anything in between).

Chef Hessa Hammoud Al Khalifa will team up with virtual reality artist Neela Rashid Al Khalifa today, while Chef Lulwah Sweileh will be paired with photographer Ishaq Madan on Monday.

On Tuesday, Chef Dana Abdel Rahman and jewellery designer Aisha Abdel Malek will be on stage, followed by Chef Bassam Al Alawi and artist Maryam Al Nuaimi on Wednesday.

Finally, Chef Mariam Shakeeb and Chef Fouad Janahi will team up with the Oracle Project on Thursday.

Each pair has been working on the project for the past two months, and they will take to the stage at 7pm every day to present the result and talk about their work.

Food is Culture runs in parallel with the Bahrain Annual Fine Arts Exhibition which will run until February 15.
