As a multidisciplinary artist, Antoni Miralda has investigated the art of food for more than four decades. Miralda uses a vibrant and inclusive language based on a celebration of the senses, exploring and disseminating food culture through audiovisual material, music, furniture, books, and other documents. Based in Miami and Barcelona, he has created large installations, bringing art to life in a nonconformist language that is lively, baroque, and kitsch. Since 2000, Miralda has focused on the FoodCulturaMuseum, an archive of multiple projects based on research and reflection around food diversity and its relation to the cultures of the world.
Miralda is a Tinker Visiting Professor at the University of Chicago and a Visiting Instructor in the department of Anthropology, collaborating with anthropologist Stephan Palmié on the course "Foodcultura and Art in Latin America: An Imaginary Museum as a Multidisciplinary Experience."
