Netherfield Ball – Pix’s Exhibition Launch, Max Mueller Bhawan
The party secrets.
[Text and photos by Mayank Austen Soofi]
One evening The Delhi Walla attended the launch of the photo exhibition of the 10th issue of ‘PIX: A Photography Quarterly’, titled Habitat.
Hosted at the Goethe-Institut in Max Mueller Bhavan, the exhibition showcased works by 16 artists including Valentino Bellini, Rasel Chowdhury, Alessandro Ciccarelli and Anshika Varma.
The photos – displayed in the Siddhartha Hall – were arresting but I preferred the launch party peopled with tattooed bodies. There was wine and beer and ‘freeloaders’ – folks who come only for the booze. At one point the sari-clad hostess approached a man, and told him, “That’s it! You’ve had your two glasses.”
Shortly afterwards I heard a stylishly-dressed woman talking loudly on her mobile phone, yelling, “Come, come, come. It has just started. There’s food too.”
That was a lie.
Party with a difference
aapki khidmat mein kuch kami reh gayi kya huzur?
They do look as though they are taking life far, far too seriously. The hostess sounds dire.
However, I’m totally jealous and wish I’d been there in my khadi kurta – how out of place would that have looked?
