Cinnamon Colomboscope 2015’s ‘Shadow Scenes’ exhibition begins in less than two weeks at the Rio Complex, Slave Island!

Featuring both international and local artists, the group exhibition curated by Natasha Ginwala and Menika van der Poorten engages the city through aspects of urbanization, colonial legacy, social identity, and communal memory, while undertaking a cinematic reading of modernity as a resonant field of violence.

Each of the rooms within the erstwhile 7-storey Rio Complex will be transformed from a ‘living ruin’ into a common stage for atmospheric works in a range of mediums from painting, installation, sound and text-based works, to photography, film and performance. Check out ‘Shadow Scenes’ at Rio Complex from August 21 to August 30. #CinnamonColomboscope.
