The “De la Milpa a la Mesa” exhibition celebrates the richness of Mexican cuisine, from farms and markets to restaurants and home kitchens. Farmers, scientists, vendors, and cooks from across Mexico share their unique perspectives on agriculture, climate change, food sovereignty, and how their diverse communities are confronting global concerns in their everyday lives.

The exhibition was developed by Te Herenga Waka Victoria University of Wellington Museum and Heritage Studies programme and the Posgrado en Estudios y Prácticas Museales programme of the Escuela Nacional de Conservación, Restauración y Museografía of the Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia in Mexico City and in collaboration with the Latin America Centre of Asia-Pacific Excellence.
