The catalogue of the first exhibition of works by artists and chefs, curated by Nicolas Bourriaud
and Andrea Petrini: assembling 25 chefs and 20 artists from around the world, Cookbook'19
explores through a large panorama the relationship between the future art of cooking
and the edibleness of art.
Beyond the aesthetic biases, the expression of a personal vision and the work on matter, principles common to these two creative spheres, the exhibition hopes to show new relations between these two worlds, born of shared recent cultural revolutions - taking into account process and collaborations, the predominance of experimentation on the object ... If these spheres are both confronted with the globalization and standardization of their practices, their answer is a specific attention towards the local and the microcosm, singularities and network.
