 Asian Grocery

Image1Image2Image3

Description

For the Asian Grocery exhibition, seven Melbourne artists who have identity connections with Korea, Malaysia, China, Vietnam, Japan, the Philippines and Iran have explored a mix of traditions, symbols and objects from the very diverse cultures of Asia.

Producing artworks in the form of trinkets, tokens and packaged goods, they have taken inspiration from stereotypical, quirky Asian grocery products (fake foods, strange household goods and shamanic instruments).

Along with inspecting the goods and artworks, the public can participate in free East Asian printmaking workshop led by the Grocer, printmaking artists, who will be adorned in quirky Asian traditional clothes and will interact with members of public in a performative manner.

Throughout the workshop process, the Grocer will make conversation about their perception of ‘being Asian’ and encourage participants to contribute to a collective live art space.

Presented during Cultural Diversity Week, in partnership with Creative Victoria and Multicultural Arts Victoria.
