Masterclass on Installation Art

What is an artistic genre of three-dimensional works that often are site-specific and designed to transform the perception of a space? When is a sculpture not a sculpture? Ever felt baffled by the terminology used by curators to describe different works of art?

Hence, Kathmandu Triennale 2017 cordially invites you to learn the intricacies of installation art with Philippe van Cauteren, curator of KT 2017 and SMAK Gent, Belgium.

Limited seats available. Art writers and students of art, architecture, and design are highly encouraged to apply.

Please note that the masterclass is free of cost, and refreshments will be provided at the venue.

The one-day masterclass will explore everything under the banner of installation art from forming an artistic vision, to planning, to the tools required, to the implementation processes. We welcome all conversation and questions.
