A brief introduction of ‘Revisiting the Roots in a Modern Nuance’
The exhibition ‘Revisiting the roots in a modern nuance’ will feature multidisciplinary artworks, literature, and music. 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.
