Drawn from ASU Art Museum’s permanent collection, “DinnerWhere” highlights a variety of plates, cups and bowls, and even a life-size dinner table. Check out “DinnerWhere” at the ASU Art Museum Ceramics Research Center, March 27 through October 9, 2021.
“DinnerWhere” refers to the ways in which these objects encourage critical conversations around national identity, rituals, food resources and inequities in the United States.
The objects featured in “DinnerWhere” reference communal and symbolic associations with coming together for meals. For some, these artworks inspire memories of the place where we nourish ourselves, celebrate important milestones, share experiences and create new understandings through conversation. For others, the works in the exhibition can be a reminder of cultural assimilation and the loss of traditions.
Artists featured include Claydies, Eddie Dominguez, Marilyn Lysohir, Russell Wright, Isaac Scott, Justin Rothshank and the Democratic Cup Project.
