A multidisciplinary arts exhibition, May 2014
|ABOUT THE EXHIBITION| Eating Cultures is a multidisciplinary arts exhibition exploring Asian Pacific American (APA) food and foodways.
Artists are invited to submit works that examine the role of food in creating and negotiating personal, gender, and cultural representations in both the APA community and U.S. mainstream culture. Food is intimately connected to the histories, cultures, and communities of APAs. From the beginning, APAs have played a crucial role in the preparation, consumption, and production of food within the United States. Food strengthens community ties, creates and reinforces cultural identity, and for many provides a taste of love, warmth, and memories of home. While APAs have experienced difficulty making significant inroads into American film, television, politics, music, or art, Asian and APA foods have enjoyed an outsized influence on the culinary landscape. Why does America give us authority in the kitchen, and what are the implications? AAWAA encourages examination of the role of food, both positive and negative, in the formation of APA identities and cultural space.
ELIGIBILITY| Artists working in visual arts, film & video, sculpture, installation, and multimedia arts of Asian Pacific American descent, in partnership with APICC - all genders welcome, 18+ years old.
