New Shores: Julio César Morales & Max La Rivière-Hedrick
Migration is a monumental undertaking, whether person or food item, it entails adjusting to a new environment, new conditions. As part of Current:LA Food, artists Julio César Morales & Max La Rivière-Hedrick are working with poets, chefs and community members to create a menu that reminds people of “home,” wherever that is. Every Sunday for the next month, the duo are exploring the cuisine of nearby neighborhoods and the immigrant stories that undergird them. “New Shores” examines what it means to exist between two homelands, drawing from the immigrant reality: two shores, two languages, two religions and two communities.
