We are excited to announce the date for ‘Revisiting the Roots in a Modern Nuance’ that we have been working on for some time now. ‘Revisiting the Roots in a Modern Nuance’ is an interdisciplinary art exhibition, a mini-festival of art and music that will take place in multiple venues in Kathmandu and Patan. The exhibition is planned for three weeks (27th April- 24th May 2022) The main purpose of the exhibition is to retrospect the roots, origins, and diversity as well as to bridge the thread of modern contemporary aspirations from the early 60s to the current neo-national ultra-modern context. The exhibition, thus, embraces the subtle differences and nuances in the art scene of not only in the past and present Nepal, but as a whole, in regards to how these different eras blend together into one harmonized art world. With the exhibition, we hope to create a narrative and promote Nepali Contemporary Art, Culture, and Lifestyle to the wider audience and market across the borders.
Prabod Shrestha, one of the participating artists in the exhibition is a self-taught artist rather a real-life explorer. His artistic journey started from the 70s- 80s during the hippie days, he frequented Freak Street Kathmandu and Lakeside Pokhara (Baidam) with friends, played guitar in a band called Cream Roll, and traveled to India, South East Asia, and different parts of Nepal.
