The MACBA pays tribute to Catalan artist Antoni Miralda—renowned for his quirky, large-scale sculptures and innovative installations—in this exhibition that showcases his most significant US projects from the mid-Seventies to the late Nineties. With a career spanning five decades, Miralda has been declared by some as one of Spain’s most radical and multifaceted artists. After moving to New York in 1971, Miralda became best known for his food-themed, interactive installations that relied on public participation. During the mid-Eighties, he put together an experimental art project, El Internacional Tapas Bar & Restaurant, in collaboration with restaurateur Montse Guillén, and founded Food Cultura, a museum exploring the history of food and its social, economic and cultural implications. Miralda inserts art into everyday life by blurring the boundaries between food and art. This exhibition, in particular, will reconstruct 15 of his most celebrated projects, including Breadline (1977), a thought-provoking row of colourful loaves and slices of bread originally placed outside the Contemporary Arts Museum in Houston, and Wheat & Steak (1981), a parade-performance that took place in Kansas City.
