NAC in India Art Fair 2018

Nepal Art Council (NAC) at Kathmandu, Nepal announces its third participation at India Art Fair 2018, 9-12 February 2018. The Nepal Art Council at India Art Fair builds on the successes of past editions of each year.

Nepal’s Participation at the fair is co-ordinated by Mr Sagar SJB Rana, Vice-Chairman, Nepal Art Council, and curated by Swosti Rajbhandari Kayastha, Curator at Nepal Art Council, and will showcase the artworks of 7 artists – Chirag Bangdel, Jeevan Rajopadhya, Mekh Limbu, Rabindra Shrestha, Sabita Dangol, Sujan Dangol, and Sunita Maharjan.

Curatorial Statement:

“Nepali art has gained an unprecedented momentum in the last few years, with the emerging artists engaging in multiple disciplines and mediums. The themes cover a wide array of subjects ranging from global and local politics, socio-cultural issues, awareness campaigns, resplendent landscapes, natural and cultural heritage. In context of the ‘global village’ world we now live in, the innovations in art form ushered in by the European masters have reached and touched the artists of Nepal. However, the growing number of talented emerging artists of diverse ethnicity and social background have created a happy fusion of the east and west to underline the coming of age of Nepali art to mix and match with the rest of the world.

Last year, the Huffington Post, a premier American online news aggregator and blog declared our booth to showcase one among the twelve ‘must see’ artworks at the India Art Fair 2017. This year too, we present the best of the contemporary Nepali art represented by seven coveted names in the field. Their works are visual metaphors of contemporary Nepali society, emotional struggles, spiritual and human connections, together with artistic imaginations unfolded on canvas providing a multi-faceted engagement to the viewers.”
