Goethe Institut Newsletter – February 2012

Come 15th February 2012, CAB will transform Colombo into a vibrant must-see destination for tourists and art lovers alike, as Colombo Art Biennale presents “Becoming 2012” – a contemporary art extravaganza like no other. “Becoming” 2012 will be a wonderful opportunity for the nation to experience the thriving arts and culture scene in Colombo. Lasting five days, this exhilarating event is a fantastic opportunity for 23 Sri Lankan artists to showcase their talent alongside 17 international artists from 12 different countries under the same roof and the same theme to the rest of the world.

Throughout Colombo, at several different venues, CAB 2012 will present artworks in existing exhibition sites such as the National Art Gallery and JD Perera Gallery as well as in private and public spaces.
In addition, CAB will host an extensive programme of fringe events around Colombo including speakers’ forums, workshops, screenings at the video lounge, curated walks, artist talks, artist lunches and dinners and of course, parties.
