Spain’s Eleven & Estrada Design Kitchen

A double exhibit on Design & Food by Spanish designer Manuel Estrada will serve as the framework for “Eat Spain Up!,” a month-long program of activities about gastronomy and Spain.

Spain’s Eleven. Eleven Gastronomy Icons from Spain

A journey across Spain’s geography through its most relevant foods, from cheese and wine to olive oil, its fish preserves or its coveted ham. The collection of photographs by various artists highlights the iconic foods of Spain and their relationship to the land and the people.

Estrada Design Kitchen

A retrospective of Manuel Estrada’s work on and around food. This exhibition explores the Spanish designer’s conceptual work at pulling apart the everyday elements of food we take for granted, transforming them into works of art. Estrada’s design with food includes food packaging, corporate imaging, print and digital publications.

Manuel Estrada is a leading graphic designer, recently awarded Spain’s National Design Award, whose groundbreaking work on food has greatly contributed to the relationship of culinary arts and other cultural disciplines such as design and literature.

Opening reception on Thursday, September 21 at 7 pm. Tastings will be offered by partner Spanish restaurants and the Eat Spain Up! guest regions. Free, RSVP required. This double exhibition is part of Eat Spain Up!
