Visions of Mustang

Resource Type: 


Daniel Byers discusses the Himalayan Kingdom of Mustang during the PechaKucha Night at the Asian Art Museum. 

PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps—just about anything really, in the PechaKucha 20x20 format, a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images forward automatically and you talk along to the images. The format was developed because, architects, along with many creative professionals, talk too much!

PechaKucha 20x20 format was devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham architecture and the first PechaKucha Night was held in Tokyo in their space SuperDeluxe in February 2003.
Are you ready to spice it up? The Maharaja exhibition has been a fabulous hit and we want to celebrate it with a great night of presenters covering all things Indian. More specifically, we'll be seeing and hearing about cross-cultural connections and evolution in design.
