The exhibition and publication centre on South Asian voices, from South Asia and the diaspora, in an attempt to connect them better and platform issues of ethnicity, religion, caste and gender. The British South Asian identity and its relation to food has often been flattened down and simplified, as can be witnesses with the British ‘curry’. There are much needed conversations to be had, in order to unpack these important issues. The exhibition also relates and connects to the legacies of the South Asian culture and community in Birmingham (as well as other parts of the UK) of which there is a considerable heritage. The exhibition and publication carve ‘conversations’ between South Asian creative producers who are engaging with culinary themes but are exploring them differently.
