Art Bites #2 Hena Kapadia // TARQ in conversation with Vishwa Shroff and Katsushi Goto
Time & Location
About the Event
Welcome to the 2nd edition, and first virtual Art Bites where we speak to artists, creative minds and thinkers to learn more about how they work and what inspires them. Hena Kapadia, Founder of TARQ, will be hosting our online session in conversation with Vishwa Shroff and Katsushi Goto. She will be talking to them about their joint practice which centers around bookmaking. She will focus on their latest project, which has been conceptualised for the ‘Everyday’ Zine. We will also be joined by Phalguni Desai, who has jointly conceptualised the zine.
About the project
The project uses late 18th early 19th century household manuals as a starting point, to document dining arrangements in a diagrammatic format as a way to note the changing face of the ways in which we eat today.
‘Everyday’ is a series of zines that broadly looks at ‘everyday’ from different perspectives. In an effort to explore new formats of art books and storytelling, each volume is an experiment created using images and words by one artist & one writer. The project is conceptualised and designed by typographer and designer Zeenat Kulavoor, curated and edited by artist Sameer Kulavoor and writer Phalguni Desai.
About the host
Hena Kapadia is founder and gallery director of the TARQ, a contemporary art gallery in Mumbai. Since founding TARQ in 2014, she has been focused on exhibiting and engaging with art that is both process driven and thought provoking. A key interest of her practice is to maintain close relationships with both artists and patrons, and to encourage thoughtful acquisitions of art.
TARQ was founded in 2014 by Hena Kapadia on the values of creating meaningful conversation around art and its myriad connotations and contexts. Envisioned as an incubator for young contemporary artists, it works towards pushing the boundaries of how contemporary art in India is exhibited and perceived. TARQ’s youthful and experimental ethos encourages collectors, novice and seasoned alike, to approach art collecting through a perspective that marries thoughtfulness with an inquisitive eye for aesthetics and artistic processes.
