The Drawing Center will present Ferran Adrià: Notes on Creativity, January 25 – February 28, 2014, the first major museum exhibition to focus on the visualization and drawing practices of master chef Ferran Adrià. The exhibition will emphasize the role of drawing in Adrià’s quest to understand creativity.
