Ferran Adria Exhibiting In Documenta’s ‘G Pavilion’


Holy smokes. Artforum reports that chef Ferran Adrià is participating in this year’s Documenta 12 in Kassel, Germany, by leaving a table for two open at El Bulli every night for exhibition visitors. El Bulli is in Costa Brava, outside Barcelona. Barcelona, Spain.
D12 director Roger Buergel will select two people at random every day during the 100-day run of the exhibition, who will receive airfare and dinner. El Bulli is officially known in the Documenta program as “the G pavilion.”
[Though judging by David Velasco’s predictably self-important Artforum reportage, a free ticket away from Kassel is just what this Documenta requires.]
