Eva Franch I Gilabert
Eva’s Paella Party
Date: Monday 24 February 2014
Venue: Lecture Hall
While peeling shrimp, chopping onions and heating the stove, Eva will discuss the cover of the New York Times of February 24 2014. Her award-winning paella will be shared with the audience. Arriving with an empty stomach is recommended.
Paella Series events are performance-based events that aim to produce intense conversations and debate through spaces of quotidian action, in this case cooking and eating. In a state of floating attention and distracted thought, the conversations held between a selected group of guests are recorded and archived for public access.
Eva Franch i Gilabert is the executive director and chief curator of Storefront of Art and Architecture in New York. Prior to joining SFAA, Eva practised as an architect in Catalonia and taught at Rice University and SUNY. Eva, together with a curatorial and design team, is the commissioner of the US Pavilion at the 2014 Venice Biennale.
This event is part of MISS – the platform that celebrates femininity in design. Our events and publications address issues around gender-roles, class systems and cultural stigmas in design discourse.
