SRI LANKAN CONTEMPORARY FEMALE | 2011

10.06.11 - 23.06.11

An exhibition of artwork featuring  Anoma Wijewardene, Sujeewa Kumari and Nadia Haji Omar  curated by Saskia Fernando, are three women whose series of work on paper present the strength of women artists in the Sri Lankan contemporary art scene today. In a male dominated art market, locally and worldwide, women artists are beginning to emerge from behind the scenes to present what some would refer to as ‘post‐feminist’ works. This exhibition presents the future of women artists in the country and a local snapshot of what women artists are emerging with worldwide.
