Miralda is a multidisciplinary artist and perhaps he is the most versatile, witty and brilliant artist of the Spanish avant-garde of the past 40 years. In 1971, he moved to New York, and since then, he has been working with the public and participatory space in the United States and Europe. His projects stem from research and are developed over long periods of time. To complete them, he requires the assistance of large groups of collaborators, as well as the cooperation of the viewer. In the mid 90’s, based on the concept of food as culture, he created the FoodCulturaMuseum, a project that has a long history of different activities and exhibitions. In 1984 Miralda and Montse Guillén, create the renowned restaurant El International Tapas Bar & Restaurant in TriBeCa in New York.
