Among other things, the Colombo Art Biennale starts this week. They’ve converted the warehouse near Park Street Mews to galleries and they’re showing stuff from Jagath Weerasinghe, Alex Stewart, and others, including stuff all around town. Tonight, Thursday it is, Dominic Sansoni is showing a series of photos from Udappu. If you recall, that’s the place with firewalking where I burnt my feet. I got some decent photos just hanging around, but he was right in the middle of the action and has some great ones. I highly recommend it, it’s at Barefoot tonight at 7:30, and I’d assume it starts on time.
I, alas, will be doing a panel discussion on ‘Beyond The Blog’ at the American Center. I dunno if there’s tickets or whatever, can call Sharmini on 772 992 143. It’s basically talking about blogging/new media to a bunch of people from local papers and electronic media.
The Biennale, of course, is ongoing. I recommend checking out all week at Park Street. Not that Park Street, the one near Hyde Park and the Arpico there. Past the Bo tree, across from Union Motors.
