Event description

Description

Pan de Muerto is a traditional soft, sweet bread shared during Día de Los Muertos. The bun has a crisscross relief of bone-shapes to represent the deceased and a teardrop shape to represent the remembrance of the living. Día de los Muertos lands on November 1st, and in anticipation ICA LA will host a workshop and live bread bake with artist Michael O’Malley and MOMO, his mobile sculpture-oven. Learn how to make the Pan de Muerto dough, bake your own dough with MOMO, or simply watch and enjoy the smells and tastes of fresh baked bread.

Michael O’Malley was born in South Bend, Indiana, and grew up in northern California. After extensive travels, O’Malley pursued graduate studies at Stanford University, where he received his M.F.A. While at Stanford, he focused on large-scale installations that altered perceptual and social situations of the body. Since then, O’Malley’s work has focused on engaging the aesthetics and conventions that shape the built environment. His latest work extends this focus to include community and sustainable art practice. O’Malley is Associate Professor of Art at Pomona College in Claremont, California.
