Royale with Cheese: Photography by Melissa Kreider
Exhibition Dates: November 7, 2014 – November 14, 2014
While Vincent Vega was referring to French names for popular sandwiches in Europe in Pulp Fiction (1994), the film references a cult portrait of Americana. “Royale With Cheese” explores Americana overseas, cultural tourism, and how a country maintains its identity when the mass infrastructure of my homeland’s pop culture threatens to overturn a cultural heritage. The photographs were made exclusively in Florence, Italy during June, July, and August of 2014; the peak of tourist season.
