Kathmandu Triennale is Nepal’s premier international platform for global contemporary art. It is the latest iteration of the pioneering Kathmandu International Art Festival (KIAF), which nurtured several historical outcomes for Nepali arts and the city of Kathmandu. Like the precursory Festivals (2009, 2012), the Triennale is thematically engaged with particular social issues and seeks to advance a nuanced approach that encapsulates the pedagogical potential of contemporary arts.
The mission of the platform is to promote Nepali arts and culture and to establish Kathmandu as a cultural hub for socially aware art practices.
Through the facilitation of the platform, organizer Siddhartha Arts Foundation (SAF) employs the arts to present multiple perspectives on contemporary themes in order to educate audiences and engage society in critical dialogue.
