Asian American Women Artist Association (AAWAA) is going to hold "Eating Cultures", an exciting arts exhibition at SOMArts running from May 1st-May 30th. Featuring over thirty emerging and established Asian Pacific American artists from around the country, Eating Cultures is a deliciously provocative multi-disciplinary arts exhibition of artworks inspired by Asian American food and foodways. Using food as a lens, artists share stories of global migration, adaptation, entrepreneurship, and the central importance of food in Asian communities around the world.
In addition to over fifty art, film, and literary works, Eating Cultures will feature Asian American oral histories provided by Southern Foodways Alliance via Guide by Cell, dynamic programming in partnership with the Asia Society and Culinary Historians of Northern California, a pop-up shop, and a recipe wall for audiences to share their favorite family recipes.
