Nepal Art Now
Weltmuseum Wien

April 11 – November 06, 2019

The traditional loci of contemporary art have shifted: the postmodern era has witnessed Paris, London, or New York yielding their exclusive status as art centres to other cities, one of which is Kathmandu.

The works in the exhibition Nepal Art Now range from outstanding representatives of the 1950s through to today’s nascent scene of vibrant new artists. As well contributing to an effective re-situating of the West’s status within an international context, these works also offer insights into how the local, the national and the global interpenetrate.
