New York – Christie’s is proud to present At the Table, a private selling exhibition at Christie’s Rockefeller Center galleries from 20 June – 1 July. The exhibition is presented in collaboration with Civil Art, a New York-based non-profit organization dedicated to raising the voices of marginalized communities through arts and literature. At the Table will present works from 30 AAPI artists, including Dominique Fung, Mikey Yates, Amanda Ba, Yuri Yuan, Hiba Schahbaz and more.
This project was conceived amid rising cases of xenophobia against the Asian diaspora heightened during the pandemic to provide opportunities to raise funds for and amplify voices of the AAPI community. As part of the initiative, Christie’s and Civil Art have produced a cookbook containing family recipes from 46 members of the Asian American community, including artists, chefs, scholars, gallery directors and more. Food is a universal necessity deeply intertwined in one’s journey in life and working as an archive of memory, bringing people together through a shared experience.
Proceeds from the exhibition and the cookbook will benefit Heart of Dinner, a non-profit organization founded during the COVID-19 pandemic to fight food insecurity and isolation experienced by New York City’s Asian American seniors. Founded by Yin Chang and Moonlynn Tsai, Heart of Dinner delivers thoughtful care packages with handwritten notes and illustrated letters in the recipients’ native languages.
