Food Meets Art: Massimo Bottura, Alain Passard, Joana Vasconcelos and Giulio Cappellini at Guggenheim Bilbao
Both food and art have the capacity to be beautiful and groundbreaking, to experiment with new concepts and nourish the senses. It’s only natural, then, that the two have been brought together at Europe’s iconic Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, home to world-class contemporary art.
Food Meets Art, hosted by S Pellegrino during the World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards, was created in order to open up a discussion between the most influential figures in the culinary and artistic world, asking what happens when the two realms interact. Moderated by head of education Marta Arzak, the event presented a world-class super-panel made up of chefs Massimo Bottura and Alain Passard, Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos and designer Giulio Cappellini. After a wide-ranging debate – which you can watch below – that explored whether cooking is, in itself, an art, guests were treated to a gastronomic experience in the gallery’s atrium, courtesy of Nerua’s Josean Alijan.
