A multi-disciplinary exhibition & performances from Asian diaspora artists for Deptford X Festival 2021: Cường Phạm, Ghost & John, Jessie Jing, Monica Tolia, Songsoo Kim, Taey Iohe & Youngsook Choi


"Have you eaten yet?" is equivalent to “how are you?” in many Asian cultures. This question carries a tangible, direct sense of care towards one's livelihood & health, which often leads to impromptu food sharing. In line with these ethics of reciprocal care and hospitality, Have You Eaten Yet? will create an affectionate healing space for the local community during Deptford X Festival 2021, built through excavated stories, interventions and performances celebrating radical expressions of Asian joy.

The opening night will see the Studio 101 courtyard transformed by a series of performances from the artists, with the traces left from each performance comprising the exhibition during the festival.

Opening performances  |  9 July, 6-10:30 p.m.

Exhibition  |  10-18 July, 2-7 p.m.

Closing performance 18 July, 2-6 pm

Have You Eaten Yet? has been commissioned by Deptford X for this year's festival & curated by the Deptford X Peer Network, an evolving group of Black and POC artists and arts organisers affiliated with Deptford X.
