Dada or Dadaism
A European artistic and literary movement (1916-1923) that flouted conventional aesthetic and cultural values by producing works marked by nonsense, travesty, and incongruity.
The term anti-art, a precursor to Dada, was coined by Marcel Duchamp around 1913 when he created his first readymades.
Dada, in addition to being anti-war, had political affinities with the radical left and was also anti-bourgeois.
Dada the restaurant opened in Delray in the year 2000 in one of the oldest historic homes the Tarrimore house circa 1924 listed as a historic site in Delray Beach. The eclectic interior and revolving artwork compliment the creative cuisine, which is sustainably sourced. As the artist of the Movement we have strived to create an environment that is original, unique and forces us to step outside the box. Dada is non-conformist. It allows our food, atmosphere and staff artistic license, so to speak, to explore beyond the normal convention
“An original is a creation motivated by desire. Any reproduction of an originals motivated be necessity. It is marvelous that we are the only species that creates gratuitous forms. To create is divine, to reproduce is human.” ― Man Ray
