HOSA Goa, the award-winning restaurant helmed by chef Suresh D.C., has served as a platform for art and photography ever since it opened. It is currently hosting a show, Over A Hundred Summers, in collaboration with artists Subodh Kerkar, Shripad Gurav, Siddharth Kerkar and Ulka Chauhan. Curated by Samira Sheth of Work of Art, Goa, the paintings engage with the state’s architectural heritage in a myriad ways, trying to capture the beauty of its old structures. The art is framed against the backdrop of the 122-year-old mansion that is home to HOSA and can even be viewed while enjoying a meal. At HOSA Restaurant and Bar, Siolim.
