Sweet Beans and Rice: Investigating a Chino-Latino Future
In partnership with Intersection for the Arts.
From May through August, Vickie Vertiz and I are co-curating an online treasure hunt documenting the ways Asians and Latinos have been, are, and will be intersecting. As the fastest growing “minorities” in the United States, we wonder what kinds of mixtures, interactions, and alliances our communities are creating.
We invite everyone to become our field agents—what ways do you see these communities intersecting? Submit your photos, stories, recipes, videos, and anything else to our online living archive of the “Chino-Latino Future.”
Our treasure hunt concludes in August with a two-part writing workshop drawing on the finds archived on our blog, Sweet Beans and Rice.
Sweet Beans and Rice is held in conjunction with Intersection for the Arts’ Chico and Chang, “a group exhibition that looks at the impact of Latino and Asian cultures on California’s visual landscape through new sculpture, video, and painting.”
