Date: 17th March 2018
Time: 2 pm to 4.30 pm
Venue: Piyadasa Gallery/ Cultural Centre, Universiti Malaya
Theme: Centered on the lifework of work of Dr. Durai Raja Singam, the session will go on to explore the place of tradition in contemporary Malaysian art and life. Is Art a way of Life? I quote the following from the cover of Durai Raja Singam’s ‘Letters of Ananda Coomaraswamy Vol 5’, 1976 (self published) ” As I wake up each morning I transcribe a letter and as I retire to bed, I copy out another. These are SUBLIME LEAVES I read in the evening of my life”.
