Taragaon Museum in collaboration with Kathmandu University Department of Art & Design organized a painting exhibition by Mike Krajniak titled 'A Painting Review by Mike Krajniak' at Taragoan Museum, Bouddha.
Have you ever wondered what Kathmandu looked like many years back? Was it just as chock-a-block with concrete houses and plagued with traffic back then as well? A photo exhibition at The Taragaon Museum might answer some of your questions.
An art exhibition at The Taragaon Museum, located in Bouddha, Kathmandu, sees a turnout of around 250 people a day. However, according to various museum curators, good turnouts like these are limited to either exhibitions of well-known artists or contemporary art showcases in well-known galleries. If these criteria aren’t met, the circumstances paint fairly bleak picture.
The exhibition featured SAA scholarship students supported by professional artists. SAA has been providing scholarship to 90 students. This 'Art Exhibition' is themed on “Nepal India Friendship”. SAA has been providing scholarship opportunities to talented and committed but financially limited and underprivileged Nepali children and youth since last seven years. All participants for this exhibition have been Academy’s scholars for the last five years.
Taragaon Museum based at Boudha, Kathmandu, is currently garnered with photo exhibition ‘Boudhanath 1972’ by Danish visual fine artist Mette Ussing. The exhibition that began on October 14 showcases both black & white and color photographs taken in 1972 when Ussing first visited Nepal.
Established in 2014, the Taragaon Museum primarily aims to document and preserve the culture, tradition, rare maps, photographs, and architectural heritage of Kathmandu Valley. This beautiful museum is located inside Hyatt Residency Kathmandu and was originally built in 1972 by an architect named Carl Pruscha.
