“Rooms II” at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Sri Lanka

It was a great honor to have my painting from 2018, Rooms II in the exhibition “The Foreigners” at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Sri Lanka from May 4 – October 22, 2023. I went there to be in conversation with curator Sandev Handy and speak about the work. The exhibition featured artist Arjuna Gunaratne, Danushka Marasinghe, Dinelka Liyanage, Hema Shironi, Hania Luthufi, Imaad Majeed, Isuru Kumarasinghe, Janani Cooray, K. K. Srinath Chathuranga, Nina Mangalanayagam, Reginald S. Aloysius, S.H. Sarath, Shyama Golden, Stephen Champion, Sumudi Suraweera. The exhibition was curated by Sandev Handy and Sharmini Pereira, with education and Public Programmes by Pramodha Weerasekera

It has been written up in Artforum Artguide as a must see exhibition, and The National: “Landmark exhibition gives Sri Lankan art a long-overdue voice on global stage.”
