24 March – 9 April 2017

KT 2017 will be curated by Philippe Van Cauteren, artistic director of S.M.A.K., Ghent, Belgium. The exhibition My City, My Studio / My City, My Life will host about 70 artists from about 25 countries. The theme of the Triennale will be a catalyst for a contemporary reflection on the relationship between art, the city and its heritage and is dedicated to the people who lost their lives in the Great Earthquakes of 2015 that hit Central Nepal.

Kathmandu is a city where the challenges of tradition and modernity meet. The city of Kathmandu is an exceptional and inspiring research station where artists from Nepal and other countries can develop their work independent of the burden of the art world. Most artists are invited to create newly commissioned works for the specific contexts of the different exhibition venues: Patan Museum, Siddhartha Arts Gallery, Taragaon Museum and Nepali Art Council.
