Whether connected to grandiose villas or common kitchens, gardens in the Renaissance were planted and treasured in all reaches of society. Due to their ephemeral nature, most gardens have changed or been lost since the Renaissance, but illuminated manuscripts of the period offer a glimpse into how people at the time pictured, used, and enjoyed these idyllic green spaces. Through a wide range of works drawn from the Getty Museum?s permanent collection, this exhibition explores gardens on many levels��from the literary Garden of Love and the biblical Garden of Eden to courtly gardens of the nobility��and reports on the many activities both reputable and scandalous that took place there.

Brands and Products Expo 2013 - Healthy Eating & Cooking Demonstration 1/29/2013

Further to its success at Food Expo 2012, the Department of Health staged a revival at the 47th Brands and Products Expo (organised by the Chinese Manufacturers' Association of Hong Kong), where it hosted a cooking demonstration on 3 January this year. This time the demonstration was performed by Fukuoka Restaurant, an EatSmart restaurant, which presented an EatSmart dish called "Rainbow Salmon Rolls", demonstrating to the public what it's like to be a "3-less" dish: "less oil, less sugar, less salt". Right after the cooking demonstration was a tasting session, where audience tasted the critically acclaimed dish and marvelled at the fresh taste and simple but healthy cooking methods.

Dietitians also shared healthy eating information with audience. A quiz was even given to them to broaden their nutritional knowledge in an interactive way. It's hoped that a culture of healthy eating will develop among the general public, and that from now on they will choose healthy dishes when dining out.

Hiroshi This exhibition presents the work of two photographers whose careers spanned much of the twentieth century, or the Showa Era (1926�C1989) as it is known in Japan. Hiroshi Hamaya (1915�C1999) and Kansuke Yamamoto (1914�C1987) began as teenagers to experiment with various formal approaches and techniques in photography. As their work matured, however, they took very different paths. Through the display of works from Japanese as well as U.S. collections, the exhibition examines two important strains in Japanese photography: the documentary investigation of regional traditions and social issues, represented in the work of Hamaya; and the avant-garde movement that developed in the context of Western surrealism and advanced through the work of Yamamoto. These two trends not only reflect significant, though rarely shown, activity in the history of Japanese photography but also reveal the complexity of modern life in that nation since the Meiji Restoration.

South Pavilion, Plaza Level, Getty Center


From the time an object is made until the day it enters a museum's collection, it may be displayed, used, and perceived in different ways. The Life of Art takes selected objects from the Getty Museum's galleries and encourages visitors to sit down and spend time with them, offering the opportunity to examine them closely to understand how they were made and functioned, why they were collected, and how they have been displayed. Through careful looking, what may be learned about the maker and previous owners of a French gilt-bronze wall light, for example, or the transformation in England of a Chinese porcelain bowl? Close engagement reveals the full lives of these works and why they continue to be collected and cherished today.
