Art that’s food for thought

A TAPAS art exhibition which includes El Bulli´s famous clothespin spoon and a table made out of bread has opened in Miami.

Tapas: Spanish Design for Food, is an ode to Spanish cooking and the influence of design on the country´s gastronomy.

The exhibition, put on by Accion Cultural Española, includes more than 8,000 square feet of displays, and over 200 exhibits.

Among the displays are pieces of paper printed with flavoured inks, and a chopping board with holes in which empties crumbs down a funnel and into a bird feeder.

Curator Juli Capella said: “Spanish design, like Spanish culture, is about fun, and this speaks to that. The message is, share your food to feed another.”

The exhibition was first unveiled at Tokyo Design Week, and will tour around the US after the stint in Miami.
