Food is endlessly evocative. It conjures up memories and aspirations as it
raises the specters of every sense. It brings forth memories of cooking,
serving, and dining, the business and engagement of restaurants, and raises
the dining table as a site of exchange, community, and negotiation. In the
recent history of Asian art and visual culture, it has played a pivotal
role in pioneering works from Rirkrit Tiravanija’s pad Thai to Lee
Mingwei’s The Dining Project. Food functions as both a site of difference
and a space of communion. It can provoke distaste and distrust as much as
desire and longing. Food and the many ways that it has been integrated into
paintings, sculptures, performances, installations, photography, and film
reveal its significance in negotiating the complex dynamics of movement and
migration, social relations and frictions, societal hierarchies, and the
building of lives and worlds in, out, and between familiar and strange
spaces. This panel invites submissions that offer a critical approach to
food and its role in the contemporary art and visual culture of Asia, its
diasporas, and its transnational circuits.
