OPENfuture: Spinning Marinetti’s Wheels
SFMOMA, Evelyn and Walter Haas Jr. Atrium
Saturday, October 17, 2009
Feeding on Futurism’s appetite for destruction, OPENrestaurant revisits F. T. Marinetti’s provocative Futurist Cookbook from 1932 — which combined polemics with actual recipes designed to transform society — and realigns the movement’s arguably fascist palate with a more sustainable approach to life. Look for cyclists delivering a locally sourced “wild beast” and a women-only kitchen carving edible sculptures against a backdrop of stadium seating, emergency sirens, and spinning walls. Guests attending this clamorous banquet can expect to exalt in sounds, smells, and constant motion, and delight in, among other things, beef ice-cream cones, avocado cocktails, and flying panforte.
$65 general; $50 SFMOMA and partner institution members, students, and seniors.
Tickets are available at the Museum (with no surcharge) or online.
