The exhibition shows a number of highly-acclaimed contemporary artists alongside major historic figures integral to British and international modernism ─ Alfred Wallis, Lucie Rie, Barbara Hepworth, Lawrence Wiener, Carol Bove, Bojan Šarčević and Katy Moran.

Highlights from the menu include Tregannou Farm asparagus salad and Nantarrow cheese, a sandwich with Newlyn Harbour hand-picked white crabmeat, and a cheese plate of local nibbles such as Cornish Yarg, Saint Endellion and Cornish Blue.
