Triennale 2077 began yesterday in which 300+ artworks were shown drawn by over 130 artists from more than 40 countries in 5 venues.

Artists working from numerous aesthetic & cosmological viewpoints and meanings in their works occupy a pivotal role at Kathmandu Triennale 2077, revealing the multiplicities that construct our kaleidoscope global reality. These include practices that have been systematically excluded from the realm of art and labeled as craft, folklore, or at best, "traditional" art by a colonial ethnographic gaze, despite the fact that these practices often perform similar cultural and social functions in their communities as art does in the global society system, and are also constantly evolving and embodying the traces of their contextual transformation and often-disobedient instability.

The Kathmandu Triennale 2077 aims to broaden the scope of contemporary artistic practices by including materiality and media from a variety of communities in Nepal and around the world, as well as various forms and lineages of an object, image, and sound-making that transversed or unfolded in parallel to the modern's fractures.

From paubha painting in Nepal, ink art in East Asia, and barkcloth in the Pacific, to body marking and weaving around the world, and other artistic languages often marginalized in global discourses on contemporary art, the Triennale discusses appropriate frameworks for understanding and bringing together these multiple aesthetic and cosmological lineages active today.

The Triennale, however, is exploring beyond these contexts' dominant traditions, showing practices from groups that have been subjected to internal colonization processes by their own, sometimes post-colonial, states and official cultural narratives.
