The team at TARQ is pleased to present ‘Feedback Loop’ curated by Kanchi Mehta, with works on display by Starlyn D'SouzaMadhavi GoreP.S JalajaNirmal KulkarniVioleta LisboaRomain LoustauLavanya Mani and Atish Saha.

Each of the eight artists’ multi-disciplinary practices bring a unique perspective to the central premise of the exhibition Feedback Loop. According to curator Kanchi Mehta, a 'feedback loop' refers to a channel or a pathway formed by an ‘effect’, returning to its ‘cause’, and generating either more or less of the same effect.

Featuring works that include photography, painting, sculpture and performance, 'Feedback Loop' constructs various circuits of cause and effect, tracking the cyclical nature of a variety of forms.

Milan Design Week 2016

Leading quartz manufacturer Caesarstone, in collaboration with British designer Tom Dixon, unveil new images from 'The RESTAURANT by Caesarstone & Tom Dixon, a multi-sensory creation consisting of four conceptual kitchens and dining halls inspired by the elements – Earth, Fire, Water and Air. Created using Caesarstone surfaces and designed by Tom Dixon, these are taking over the Milan Children’s Museum (MUBA) in the historical Rotonda della Besana during the 2016 design festival in Milan.

Set within the ideal backdrop of a 17th century Cloister and a deconsecrated church, the installation provides a unique interpretation of how food and surfaces can interact in an exercise of distinctive tastes, smells and visuals within each kitchen. Reflecting the individual element through colour and texture, Caesarstone's surfaces become the ultimate plateau for a creative dining experience that engages all the senses.

For this installation, a food concept curated by Italian food design studio Arabeschi explores the power of nature’s elements in a menu that combines traditional ingredients with modern techniques.  Cooking in the kitchens, the chefs are creating a multi-sensory dining experience where food is prepared and served on Tom-Dixon designed Caesarstone surfaces, combining rare, element-inspired cooking techniques with fresh and unique ingredients.


No pre-booking policy. There will be plenty of space to accommodate large groups at any time of the day.
Dining rates:
-       1 dish (you can choose from any kitchen) = 10 Euros
-       4 dishes (the whole experience) = 25 Euros
-       Visitors can pay with cash or card

Teaser La littorale #6 - Anglet contemporary art international biennial

The sixth Anglet-Bask Coast contemporary art international biennial has been named La Littorale, a name chosen to anchor this cultural event geographically. This time the event’s artistic direction has been entrusted to writer and art historian, Paul Ardenne.

With La Littorale #6 the new curator wants “selected artists to question the tensions and contradictions to which shores are now subject. This are in fact places that are sought after for the gentle lifestyle they offer as much as for being physical frontiers, limits, political spaces, bringing together stakeholders often with very different interests.”
Anglet adds to these aspects the idea of an “ecological Eden, in grandiose natural surroundings”. The biennial thus restates its character as an open air exhibition, with wide open spaces for expression, where priority goes to themes linked to the complexity of the coastline: A leisure time seaside resort, a frontier contact area, a fragile rapidly evolving ecological space.

From 26th August to 2nd November 2016, La Littorale #6 offers a journey through monumental works created by artists of several different nationalities installed in emblematic locations: La Barre, the Izadia ecological park, the seafront and its green spaces as well as La Chambre d’Amour.
