Baku reports on Garden of Ten Seasons Exhibition at Savvy Contemporary in Berlin
At the 59th edition of the Venice Biennale an announcement was made at the Nepal Pavilion, that a collaborative initiative between Kathmandu Triennale, Savvy Contemporary, Para Site, Siddhartha Arts Foundation and Durjoy Bangladesh Foundation (DBF), with further support of Wellington and Virginia Sun Yee Trust, was going to take place.
A precursor to the Kathmandu Triennale (KT-2077), Garden of 10 Season engaged 40 international artists, aiming to investigate identity, cultural hegemonies and the politics of material.
