Abu Dhabi Art 2022 to feature curated culinary art experience

Estimated read time 2 min read


Abu Dhabi Art announces the launch of CookBook Abu Dhabi, an exceptional culinary art experience that will feature the art fair’s 14th edition program, taking place from November 16 to 20 at Manarat Al Saadiyat.

Renowned chefs Ivan Brehm, Kasper Kurdahl, Maksut Aşkar, and Sahar Parham Al Awadhi will work with artists Caique Tizzi, Emeka Ogboh, Greta Alfaro, and Hicham Berrada to take visitors on a culinary and artistic journey through specially designed menus within an immersive space containing artworks explicitly created for the experience at Manarat Al Saadiyat’s restaurant.

The CookBook is a special exhibition project created by Nicolas Bourriaud, founder of Radicants, founder of Montpellier Contemporain (MoCo) and co-founder of the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, and Andrea Petrini, culinary journalist, curator, and creator of ‘Gelinaz!.’

The project seeks to investigate the relationship between the visual arts and the culinary arts by exploring their mutual influence on each other. Bringing contemporary artists and chefs together, CookBook integrates their practices in the same space. The first iteration occurred in 2013 at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Paris, juxtaposing historical artists with contemporary chefs.

This year, the third edition of CookBook is produced by Radicants International for the Abu Dhabi Art fair. The artists’ projects are showcased alongside a pop-up restaurant offering Brazilian cuisine by artist chef Tizzi, a performance/dinner conceived by three of the most experimental chefs in the world, Chef Brehm, Chef Kurdahl, and Chef Aşkar, and two other events bringing together pioneering local chefs.

The participating chefs are knowledgeable of developments in the contemporary art space and have integrated them into their work, presenting cuisine through performance art or interactive pieces. They offer remarkable dishes and an entirely immersive experience focusing on the environment and context.
