Join artist Shellie Zhang as she shares her research as part of the exhibition Accent, on display at Y+ contemporary from May 20 – June 10, 2017. Zhang will discuss the history of MSG, its antagonization and parallels to Yellow Peril, the flawed science behind this antagonization, how Chinese restaurants prevailed, cases of contemporary chefs revisiting the substance, how to cook with MSG, and advice for using the enhancer.

The talk will conclude with a provided lunch, where participants can share stories surrounding food, food resources, and the reclaiming of culture through food. The menu will be comprised of local Chinese cuisine. Potluck contributions are also encouraged. If you have any dietary restrictions, please contact us at info@ypluscontemporary.com to arrange accomodations.
