The Art Wall Project

Stephanie H. Shih: My Sweetie Has No Pockmarks 我寶貝沒有麻子

August 25, 2022 – May 14, 2023

The second iteration of  The Art Wall Project features the sculptures made by Stephanie H. Shih. Best known for her ceramic groceries, Shih’s work explores ideas of home and nostalgia through the lens of food. Her installation at the museum will feature bags of rice to consider how Asian identity has been flattened through stereotypes and to reclaim this pantry staple as a touchpoint of Asian American identity.

The Syracuse University Art Museum’s new Art Wall initiative is dedicated to site-specific works by emerging and leading contemporary artists, commissioned annually.
