Kathmandu Triennale is Nepal’s premier international platform for global contemporary arts, now in its fourth edition. It is the latest iteration of the pioneering Kathmandu International Art Festival, initiated and organised by Siddhartha Arts Foundation, which has nurtured several historical outcomes for Nepali arts and the city of Kathmandu.
Set to be the largest presentation of contemporary art in Nepal to date, KT 2077 is curated by Artistic Director Cosmin Costinas and Co-Curators Sheelasha Rajbhandari and Hit Man Gurung. The Triennale is informed by discourses of decolonisation, migration and displacement, indigenous knowledge, and redefining the parameters of art beyond a Eurocentric canon. It will discuss appropriate frameworks of understanding and bring together the multiple aesthetic and cosmological lineages active today.
