Ferran Adria: Notes on Creativity
Through sketches, models and diagrams the exhibition charts the origins of Adrià’s intellectual and philosophical ideas about gastronomy.
Spanish master chef Ferran Adrià consistently employs visualization and drawing as tools in the formation of his innovative cookery and overall creativity. Notes on Creativity is the first major art exhibition for Ferran Adrià, emphasizing the role of drawing, language and symbol in his quest for new gustatory experiences.
For over 20 years, Adrià oversaw Spain’s most famous destination-restaurant, elBulli. There he created an innovative multi-sensory vocabulary and structure that expanded the ways in which we encounter, consider and judge our relationship to food and art. Through sketches, models and diagrams, Notes on Creativity charts the origins of Adrià’s intellectual and philosophical ideas about gastronomy that have forever changed how we understand food.
