Modern Artists III
The Gaze of Modernity:Photographs by Lionel Wendt
■Period:21 August, 2003 - 28 October, 2003
■Venue:Asia Gallery B
This is the third exhibition of the Modern Artists series, which introduces
an artist or group who developed Modern art in Asia. From a private
collection in Delhi, we will exhibit photographs by Lionel Wendt
(1900-1944), a Sri Lankan photographer. He contributed to the establishment
of “Group 43” that was the first modern art movement in Sri Lanka. His
works still raise fresh issues through his original modernistic composition
and experimental sprit, which influenced by Surrealism and Constructivism,
and through his view toward tropical nature and male nudes.
