Whose Plate, Whose Palate?

Artists Rajyashri Goody and Sri Vamsi Matta in conversation

The act of eating traces and retraces borders. While in some instances food transcends borders, in others it sets unbending boundaries as to what food should constitute, and who you can eat with. Discerning these borders within art practices that look at foodscapes can help us understand its transformative nature.

Join Rajyashri Goody and Sri Vamsi Matta as they illustrate and speak about their work in documenting the tangible and intangible borders defined by food in relation to caste. And how for Dalits, the cooking and consumption of food can act and function as markers of solidarity and belonging, as well as exclusion.
