Event in Memory of Dr.Pedro Cabral Adao
The 3rd Annual Event in memory of Dr. Pedro Cabral Adao Former Consul General of Portugal in Goa will be inaugurated by Rev. J. Loiola Pereira, Secretary to the Archbishop of Goa. at Art Chamber – Galeria de Belas Artes, Gauravaddo, Calangute, on November 29, 2009, at 7.00 pm.
Alexyz, the irrepressible cartoonist, will be out again with another rare exhibition – “Laughter, The Jest Best Medicine”. The exhibition comprises Alexyz’s cartoons and caricatures relating to Laughter.
Thereafter the rib-tickling show will remain open for the art loving public till December 10, 2009 from 10.00 am to 07.30 pm every daily.
Says Alexyz, “In India, the importance of Laughter is as old as the Himalayas.
Our renowned yogis conceived the legendary Hasya (laughter) Yoga concept to maintain a truly healthy mind, body and soul. However, laughter as a therapy and medicine received a cracker of life after Norman Cousins (1915 – 1990), a popular USA author, professor and world peace advocate who cured himself with Laughter when doctors told him he had just six months to live. Thereafter he wrote the bestseller “Anatomy of an Illness “, which has inspired millions of people.
Laughter clinics, clubs and laughologists have since sprouted in almost every country. My exhibition is put up with the hope that it will tickle the funny bone of our Goenkars and to look at laughter seriously.’
The 50 odd exhibits comprising cartoons and caricatures of celebrities, selected for their experiences with laughter, from the year 4 BC to the present times. There will also be a few Alexyz installations on Laughter.
Besides the show there’ll be a screening of movies on Dec.2 and a Festival of Laughter for children on Dec. 5 and for adults on Dec. 6 . On Dec.10 there will a meet for all those keen on joining a regular ‘Just for Laughs’ initiative at Yolanda’s. Ha ha ! Hee Hee !!
