In February The Drawing Center will host Ferran Adrià: Notes on Creativity, the first U.S. museum exhibition of the drawings and artifacts used by the renowned Spanish chef to create the dishes served at El Bulli. The items on display will range from Adrià's scribbled little diagrams of each plating, to utensil prototypes and the "working boards" that were used to organize and track the development of each menu. A film called 1846, which features images of every dish ever made at El Bulli, will also play on loop.
On a whole the show is meant to give insight into Adrià's creative process. As the curator, Brett Littman tells the Times, "Instead of writing recipes like most chefs, Ferran begins by making drawings." The show opens with a reception on January 24 and runs through the end of February.
