Colomboscope opens with a splash

21 August 2015 - 169   - 0

Cinnamon Colomboscope opened on Friday, 21 August with preview events to mark its two main programmes. The exhibition ‘Shadow Scenes’ curated by Menika van der Poorten and Natasha Ginwala will occupy the Rio Hotel until 30 August. The talks and literature programme ‘The City. Identity. Urbanity’ curated by Radhika Hettiarachchi ends on Sunday (23 August) evening. The talks and literature programme commenced with a preview by Kerry Young and Naresh Fernandez, who read excerpts from their published work and indulged a rather quiet, but appreciative audience with glimpses into their own lives and histories. ‘Shadow Scenes’ at the Rio Hotel was characterized by its heady enthusiasm for multi-media, with photographs, videos and installations dominating the artwork available for viewing across seven floors of the hotel. Here, 40 plus artists-both local and international-presented their work.
