Netherfield Ball – Pix’s Exhibition Launch, Max Mueller Bhawan
The party secrets.

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
