Art New England Reviews Home Cooking, Exhibition Curated by John Yau

"A Taste of Home Cooking" by Emily Avery-Miller
If you looked to the kitchen for consolation during the pandemic, you were not alone. Poet and art critic John Yau noticed that his social media feed was full of what people were eating, and the trend became part of the inspiration for the food-themed group show, Home Cooking, that he’s curating at LaiSun Keane Gallery in Boston’s SoWa Arts District.
Yau invited 11 Asian-American artists, ten women and one man, to contribute two pieces each. They represent different generations, and come from widely different training and approaches. Yet Yau’s curatorial vision illuminates the paradoxical power of food to feel both deeply personal and universal.
