Written by San Antonio-raised and Austin-based artist Virginia Grise with an installation by Los Angeles-based designer Tanya Orellana, rasgos asiáticos – sobremesa transforms the Train Shed next to the Silos at Sawyer Yards into a market of memories — a site-specific, multisensory experiential installation. Told through a series of inherited stories, fragmented memories, historical re-imaginings and recurring dreams, rasgos asiáticos explores the fluidity of borders and time, unearthing hidden histories in the confluence of China, Mexico, and the United States.

rasgos asiáticos – sobremesa is created in collaboration with artist and chef Verónica Castillo, director Kendra Ware, sound designer Daniel Gower, and creative producer Megan E Carter.
