KALĀ | Artist Tables

April 4, 2024

In keeping with the platform’s intention to build collaborations with practitioners, representatives and institutions across the island and the South Asian region, The series KALĀ+ featured talks, workshops and screenings both at the Lionel Wendt Art Centre and with leading representatives, institutions and individuals from the Sri Lankan art ecosystem. These events were curated with focus on building the visibility of developments of the arts locally while also focused on accessibility for youth, students, enthusiasts and patrons. Our objective annually is to develop and grow via these collaborations extensively.

In collaboration with our restaurant partners KALĀ had the pleasure of hosting two artist tables with esteemed artists Chandraguptha Thenuwara and Jagath Weerasinghe.

Guests were invited to enjoy an intimate evening with artist Chandragupta Thenuwara while indulging in a delicious four course menu at GINI Outdoor Kitchen. The evening included an introduction to the artist and his practice by gallerist Saskia Fernando.

KALĀ was delighted to host an intimate gathering at the private
residence of renowned chef and writer Koluu. The gathering welcomed artist Jagath Weerasinghe, introduced to the attendees by curator Mariyam Begum. The evening featured a delectable array of local cuisine from Food Prints by Koluu
