Visiting the Kathmandu Triennal

The Kathmandu Triennial took place from February 11th to March 31st. On March 29th, a few students from the NiMS visited the exhibition as part of an excursion. The Kathmandu Triennial is Nepal’s leading international platform for global contemporary art and is presented in 5 different locations in the Kathmandu Valley. Entry was free. The NAGers really enjoyed the excursion and hopefully will benefit from it for their own artistic work. If you would like more information about the exhibition, you can find it here:
