Sketching, Ferran Adria 'Notes on Creativity', Book out Now, Museum Exhibit Tour starts in Cleveland, Sept 26

Sketching is not limited to painters, sculptors and architects as Ferran Adria 'Notes on Creativity' shows.

Work is out in book form as Ferran Adria: Notes on Creativity (The Drawing Center, 2014).

"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)."


The museum exhibit tour starts at the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland, OH, September 26, 2014 - January 18, 2015 followed by Minneapolis Institute of Art, MN, Sept 17, 2015 - January 3, 2016; and Marres House for Contemporary Culture, Maastricht, The Netherlands, March 20 - June 12, 2016.
