The gallery is pleased to present Soy Dreams of Milk, a group exhibition of 6 East Asian artists that explores the complex experiences of migration, movement, and diasporic worlding. The exhibition title entangles a compact imagery comprising of universal substances, relating “soy”, a legume endemic to East Asia and a major export food crop in the Americas; “milk”, a white mammalian fluid evocative of the biblical promise land “flowing with milk and honey”; and “dream”, a cherished aspiration or a series of scenes and sensations occurring unconsciously in the mind. In its surrealist assemblage, Soy Dreams of Milk attempts to stage the complex sensorium conjured by the restlessly wandering subject. What is the experience of leaving, of being diaspora, and of returning? Why are you here, and what are your dreams?
