The current Charles B. Wang Center exhibition Potasia: Potatoism in the East features an insightful and entertaining survey of artworks with the potato as their central subject matter. The exhibition showcases a wide spectrum of potatoes, in all manner of genres and situations—from the fantastical to the realistic, and from the comedic to the serious. The potato is not only a nutritious and earthy food but, as featured in these Asian artworks, it is also an egalitarian, versatile, multifaceted, multilingual, and multidisciplinary motif. A curated selection of books from Special Collections’ Jacqueline M. Newman Chinese Cookbook Collection, the largest collection of its type in the world is included in the exhibition.
