Urban Street Food Culture Around the Globe

February 7, 2017 – March 30, 2017
Location: Student Wall
Artist(s): Ashley Rose Young

This photography exhibit explores street foods, food markets, and the people who provision urban communities across the globe with fresh and prepared foods. 

The exhibit captures food vendors' entrepreneurial spirit and efforts to advance their local businesses in an increasingly industrialized global food system. The exhibit celebrates the vibrancy of urban food cultures and their ability to endure in an era of seeming culinary homogeneity. Curated by Ashley Rose Young, Doctoral Student in History at Duke.

This exhibition was sponsored in part by the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation.
