House of Oriental: Northern Style Exhibition, 2019

Emery describes House of Oriental: Northern Style, as an exhibition of works exploring pan-Asian Canadian foods: recipes developed from hybridity, alienation, assimilation, survival, and poverty. The works in this exhibition aim to explore not the most “authentic” or “real” ethnic foods, but to present the foods and experiences born out of the land’s rich (or poor) newcomer history. The exhibition includes works ranging from paintings to photography as well as a recipe book, compiling the foods behind the art.
