Art Pop-Up at Portugalia Marketplace

July 20 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Art pop-up🎉 featuring Sammy Seungmin Lee – experience it live at Portugalia Marketplace on 7/20 from 10 AM – 12 PM.
📍Come see her Street Art Cart set up inside Portugalia Marketplace where you can watch or join in as the table is set!
“A Very Proper Table Setting” 🍽️ is a project that invites participants to serve imagined meals to living and deceased loved ones using Korean dishes 🇰🇷
The project begins with a series of experiments centering around setting tables. Lee invites visitors to arrange imaginary meals for a loved one using Korean dinnerware. When participants conceive a specific dish from their own culture and are unable to find a suitable serving vessel, they experience feelings common amongst newly settled immigrants, such as inadequacy to fit into the mainstream culture or inability to properly represent their own customs.
Many participants who used a past relationship as inspiration for their exercise found the process healing. Through the universal act of setting a table, many experienced feelings of disorientation, rapport, adaptation, and a sense of community through memories of a loved one. In the final art piece, these unique personal narratives displayed through each table setting will come together as a large community dining table. The quiet power of Very Proper Table Setting rests in its engagement of our caring and restorative impulses at a time when almost any issue can further splinter partisan divides.
Sammy Lee is an artist based in Denver, Colorado. Lee was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea, and moved to Southern California at the age of sixteen. She studied fine art and media art at UCLA and architecture at the UMass Amherst.
