Edible Magritte, 2013
Museum of Modern Art
This dinner experience interpreted the Rene Magritte exhibition at MOMA in 2013. In collaboration with Chef Lynn Bound of MOMA’s Cafe2, I developed a six-course menu based on several works in the exhibition. The evening included a tour by one of the exhibition curators. The final course of the meal required the diners to reenact the pivotal and carnal painting, Girl Eating Birl/Pleasure. No utensils were offered. Diners bit into their birds, red juice gushed out and the chocolate melted on their bare hands revealing the raspberry “guts.”
Here are a few links for the “Edible Magritte” dinners at MoMA on October 29 and November 14, 2013.
