Thursday, March 28 – Our friends at the the Wexner Center for the Arts will host the book release event for Paloma Martinez-Cruz’s much-anticipated contribution to our Latinx Pop Culture Series Food Fight!: Millennial Mestizaje Meets the Culinary Marketplace. The Wexnar Center is Ohio State University’s multidisciplinary, international laboratory for the exploration and advancement of contemporary art and is the perfect host for the event, as Food Fight! contributes to urgent discussions around the problems of cultural misappropriation, labeling, identity, and imaging in marketing and dining establishments. Not just about food, restaurants, and coffee, this volume employs a decolonial approach and engaging voice to interrogate ways that mestizo, Indigenous, and Latinx peoples are objectified in mainstream ideology and imaginary.
