Let There Be A Celebration

Posted by sepoy on January 19, 2008 · 1 min read

I have been waiting, patiently and with bated breath, for this moment for a while now. Those close to me can attest that I am not a patient man, so this has been a rather Amir Hamzaish effort on my part.

Lapata is having a show!

Let me state that a bit more emphatically:
Lapata is having a show!

Bollyhood Cafe Presents



February 7-March 6, 2008

OPENING RECEPTION Thursday, February 7, 6-9 PM
BHANGRA by Duniya Dance Company 8 PM

3372 19th Street
(Cross Street Mission)
San Francisco, CA 94110
(415) 970-0362

This being the First CM Event of The Century, everyone on the West Coast and on the East Coast and Around the World must join us, introduce themselves, and buy lapata a martini.

If you are new to the game, you can view Lapata's work at her flickr site.

hooray; congrats! if I weren't on the wrong side of the country I'd be there for sure. Do post pictures. also, I second that earlier appeal for prints--if they become available, I'm buying. Though given lapata's subject matter, that might require some explanation to my housemates ('why is there a picture of ahmedinejad on the kitchen wall?')

lapata | January 19, 2008

Thanks Sepoy, and thanks Elizabeth! Wish you could be here. I think I will do maybe a limited run of prints. More on that soon. And I'm sure your housemates will eventually adjust to having Ajad around the house.

Congrats, that sounds cool. Alas I will have to wait till "Ironic Iconic" comes to Dallas. Future GWB presidential library will be a good place to hold this exhibition. Thanks Sepoy for variety

Congatulations! I wish I could be there, too!! Art in our family?? Stranger things have happened, I suppose.

Anil | January 20, 2008

Yay! Lapata, look forward to your taking your show on the road and bringing it here to New York. Maybe you can tag along as opening act for Socks's book tour.

lapata | January 20, 2008

Next stop: NYC, Dallas.... My agent is in talks with Socks' agent, so we'll see. Fingers crossed!

Desi Italiana | January 20, 2008

There's a cafe called "Bollyhood?" Anyway, congrats, Lapata! Maybe I will swing by if I am not immersed in doing my tax forms before I leave for Nepal. Come to Nepal to do a show, yes?

lapata | January 20, 2008

There is, weirdly. 19th and Mission, definitely come! If Socks is going to Nepal, we'll definitely do a show there.

Farangi | January 20, 2008

Are you serious about NYC? If so, when? I can actually drive there. O this is great.

Farangi | January 20, 2008

And remember, folks, when at a CM "Event of the Century," guests Do Not Disturb the Sexy.

Desi Italiana | January 20, 2008

"There is, weirdly." Hmm... maybe I have passed by it without knowing it was "Bollyhood." Is it kitsch? Is there a beat up rickshaw outside of it? "19th and Mission, definitely come!" The Mission is ripe for discussion on gentrification... But yes, I will try to come. The date also works out perfectly.

Desi Italiana | January 20, 2008

[15 second passed] There are no photos or images of the cafe itself, just millions of Bollywood posters... What's a "Yelp Elite Party?" High class goondas meeting up? G's in the Hood.

Baraka | January 21, 2008

Love your work & hope to make it to the reception! Warmly, Baraka

lapata | January 22, 2008

Farangi: I don't know how we will safeguard the sexy without the full triumvirate in place. DI: Um, how about lots of judgmental people all standing in one room yelping? Baraka: Excellent! Hope to see you there!
