Food, art, and new gastronomy: a new exhibit at the Picasso Museum
Opening Friday, the 200-piece collection shows the diverse culinary world of the artist with the perspective of chef Ferran Adrià
If you love food, what you eat becomes much more than a necessity: cuisine becomes a part of not only who you are, but also what you do. Such is the case for acclaimed painter Pablo Picasso, a relationship retraced in the new exhibition ‘Picasso’s Kitchen.’
Picasso “ate the world”
The proposition runs from May 25 until September 30 at the Barcelona Picasso Museum. Named ‘La cuina de Picasso’ in Catalan, the name leaves the door open to interpretation between the physical space to cook, and the cultural cuisine the painter so loved. Picasso, in fact, was born in Malaga, but spent a significant amount of his life living and painting in Catalonia.
