The exhibition MIRALDA MADEINUSA brings together all the projects of the artist linked to the United States. It will document for the first time and in a comprehensive manner the fourteen projects made by Miralda in the United States from the mid-seventies to the late nineties. The most significant installations will be reconstructed showing sculptures, drawings, photographs, visual recordings, sketches and other material. This will highlight the complexity of his projects and the collective nature of the artist’s methodology.

miraldaAmong the most representative works are Breadline (1977), a monumental line of bread presented at the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston; Wheat & Steak (1981), a food parade along the streets of Kansas City, an exhibition at the Nelson-Atkins Museum and a special event at the Board of Trade of this city; El Internacional Tapas Bar & Restaurant(1984–86), a social and artistic experiment made with the restauranteur Montse Guillén in New York’s TriBeCa; and Honeymoon Project (1986–92), a symbolic wedding between the Statue of Liberty in New York and the Columbus Monument in Barcelona, performed in several locations. The exhibition will also include the large installation belonging to the MACBA Collection, Santa Comida (Holy Food), 1984–89, based on the legacy of Afro-Caribbean culture in America today.

Miralda has developed a method based on participation and on the ritual and ceremony related to gastronomy. Employing a non-conformist language, baroque and full of humor, that celebrates the senses and brings art close to life; he undertakes an ethnological exploration of human behavior in his work.
