Chop Suey on the Prairies

April 20, 2013 - April 27, 2014

There are more Chinese restaurants in North America than many of the popular fast food joints combined. Chinese restaurants range in size and grandeur from upscale banquet halls serving over 500 people, to small, hole-in-the-wall cafés run by families with the parents cooking and serving, and children doing homework in the corner. Travel to any town in Alberta, large or small, and chances are you will find a Chinese restaurant. Find out what makes them special. Is it the food or the people? And what actually makes a Chinese restaurant, "Chinese"? The exhibition Chop Suey on the Prairies tries to answer these questions and unveils some surprising truths about the history of Chinese restaurants in Alberta.
