The Gift

At Lunuganga Trust

Open Sunday
On February 16 at 10 a.m.

Please join the Geoffrey Bawa Trust on Open Sundays to view The Gift; an installation of six site-specific works at Lunuganga. The gardens have always been a quiet source of generosity for those interested to draw from it.

As part of the artistic program commemorating Geoffrey Bawa’s 100th birthday, Lunuganga will reconnect with this energy to host a program of installations by artists and makers from Sri Lanka and abroad, in a series where the garden is explored as a site of hospitality and a place of encounter. The artists invited for this project are: Kengo Kuma, Lee Mingwei, Dominic Sansoni, Dayanita Singh, Sarah Sze and Chandragupta Thenuwara; all six have had a long interest in the work of Bawa.

The installations will be on display from January – July 2020; works by Dayanita Singh, Sarah Sze and Chandragupta Thenuwara are forthcoming.

Due to limited capacity, please register at the following link to enter the garden free of charge: http://bit.ly/opensundays

Donations are welcome. Those who do not register may pay the standard garden tour rate to enter.
