About the Event
one hundred thousand small tales
December 13—March 13, 2020
How do artworks tell stories? What stories do they not tell? Can the same story be told in different ways? One hundred thousand small tales explores some of these questions through its presentation and juxtaposition of over 115 artworks, by 45 artists across different generations. This exhibition aims to provide starting points for how we understand the paths of art production from the lead up to Sri Lanka’s independence in 1948 to the present.
