Published by The Drawing Center. Text by Richard Hamilton. Interview by Brett Littman.
This publication accompanies the first major museum exhibition in the world to focus on the visualization and drawing practices of master chef Ferran Adrià. His complex body of work positions the drawing medium as both a philosophical tool--used to organize and convey knowledge, meaning and signification--as well as a physical object--used to synthesize over twenty years of innovation within the kitchen. Emphasizing the role of drawing in Adrià’s quest to understand creativity, the book features an interview between Ferran Adrià and Brett Littman, and also includes a reprint of the artist Richard Hamilton’s essay about the relationship of food to contemporary art and Adrià’s participation in Documenta 12 that first appeared in Food for Thought: Thought for Food (2009).
