A collaboration between Arts Connection Foundation, Food of War US, and the Fuentes Angarita Collection, The Forbidden Fruit: Object of Desire is a multidisciplinary exhibition revolving around the theme of the pomegranate as the most sumptuous and enigmatic of the forbidden fruits, with contemporary applications to culture, art and social policy. The pomegranate serves as a potent visual symbol, herein challenging the various conventional notions being currently utilised to negatively target the LGBTQ+ community via harsh legislation.
