April 28, 2014: Eating Cultures

Asian American Women Artist Association (AAWAA) and Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center (APICC) join forces to present the multidisciplinary art exhibition Eating Cultures, for the United States of Asian America Festival.

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, artist share stories of global migration, adaptation, entrepreneurship, and the central importance of food in Asian communities around the world.

Kate Raphael talks to queer artists Sigi Arnejo, Kay Cuajunco and Genevieve Erin O'Brien about their contributions to the show, their exploration of identity and the meaning of food in their Asian cultures.
