Art Rage: “Bãtchìt”
Enjoy Bollywood-style beats from India, specialty cocktails, creative art experiences, and social networking. Our popular after-hours event will incorporate the “Bãtchìt” (pronounced “Baatcheet”), inspired by the Hindi word for “conversation” and the Japanese presentation model, pechu kucha. Rapid-fire, fast-paced, energetic multi-media presentations will showcase contemporary South Asian culture from fashion to film.
RSVP and invite your friends on Facebook here.This program is the first in the series “Bãtchìt Around the Bay,” a project of the South Asian Art Collective that will include Bãtchìt events at the University of California Berkeley’s Center for South Asia Studies and the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco, in 2011–12.
