Dhoom Dhamaka!

Our friend Lapata is having an exhibition at Counter Pulse and I failed, miserably, to notify you. More importantly, I wasn't able to attend in person.

She has put the works featured in the show on her flickr page: Dhoom Dhamaka! Show.

I think some of her strongest work, to date, is being featured in this show - specifically, the Rasa series. Since she has portrayed generals and kings, she immediately got how a true theocratic-juristical Leader, such as me, should be captured. After a lengthy, exhaustive, and exhausting series of photo-shoots - scattered around the globe - she finally was able to capture the sprite that lurks behind my twinkling eyes. That iridescent smile.


In all seriousness, go see her show:

1. Dhoom Dhamaka!

Sept. 4 - Oct. 1

Opening reception: Sept. 4 at 6-8 PM.

1310 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 94103

The show will be held in conjunction with a performance by Joti Singh's Duniya Dance Company. Performances will take place Sept. 11-13 at 8 PM.

The theme? The War on Terror! Paintings are shown in the lobby and can be seen from 12-6 Tues-Fri, at the opening, and during the performance (where they will be projected onto the stage). For more information about purchasing tickets ($12-$20) for the performance and directions to the venue, visit CounterPulse .

Bibhatsa's pretty awesome, too. Sad to miss the opening and performances, but I will convey my respects to the paintings in person later this month.

Very good article on Pakistan's war with FATA http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/07/magazine/07pakistan-t.html?pagewanted=1&_r=2&ref=magazine too bad the liberal, western elitist pakistanis would rather have peace at any cost than necessary war. But then again, is pakistan even a country?
