Lecture Maricel Presilla at TAPAS: Past, Present and Future

Lecture Maricel Presilla at TAPAS Past, Present and Future1Wednesday, November 20, 7pm - Moore Space, 4040 NE 2nd Avenue, Suite 200., Miami Design District

This exhibition sets out to show how design and food have always been interrelated and how the discipline of design has sought solutions to the problems posed by the world of cuisine. TAPAS. Spanish Design for Food takes a look at how Spanish culture has come up with ingenious inventions and solutions in this respect throughout its history, playing a prominent role at all times. This association, in addition to bearing fruit from a functional viewpoint, has been equally productive in the world of art, which has drawn inspiration from food to create interesting pieces that range from artistic installations to anthropological discourse.

Spain brings together design, creativity and cuisine as characteristic values. In both raw materials and their preparation, in the theoretical field and in inspired designs, Spain’s food culture crosses boundaries and competes at the highest level worldwide.  Spanish designers, chefs, companies and institutions contribute daily to shaping this culture, which unarguably constitutes a highly valuable intangible asset. Organized by Acción Cultural Española (AC/E) in collaboration with CCEMiami (Centro Cultural Español Miami), and SPAIN arts & culture.
