Exhibition: Keepa Maskey
A solo exhibition of works by Keepa Maskey at the City Museum Kathmandu will open on 3 December, and will continue till 10 December.
Ms. Maskey moved to the US at age 18, where she pursued her studies in Fine Arts in New York. Born to Baikuntha and Bimala Maskey in 1973, her grandfather, Krishna Bahadur Chitrakar was an artist who she would watch prepare panels of work for national events, as a child. In this exhibition, the subject matters vary from the artist’s memories of her grandmother, and of her own childhood to her experiences and observations as a woman today. The theme I driven by “coming to terms with, and embracing oneself.”
As part of its commitment to promote and incubate young artists, the City Museum Kathmandu has hosted many exhibitions of young artists, most recently Aditya Aryal’s (Sadhu-X) solo exhibition.
Winter Hours: 10AM -6:30PM, 7 days a week.
