Danfe: Nepali Contemporary and Traditional Art Show comes to Eastbourne
Opens Wednesday 19th to Saturday 29th June
Danfe is a touring art show with a purpose. The project, set up by recent University of Sussex MA graduate, Shivangi Bansal, aims to bring over the Nepali artists who might not get the chance to show in Nepal itself, for all kinds of reasons. The work ranges from traditional Thangka imagery to hybrid works that mix and match ideas generated from social and political media.
During June and July 2019 Shivangi will bring work from 15 to 20 artists to show the sheer variety of creative work taking place in her home country, and she hopes to set up opportunities for collaboration with UK artists and creative spaces who might want to set up longer-term partnerships. Already shows are planned Eastbourne and Hastings.
All work will be for sale, with funds going back to the artists, as well as curator, Shivangi Bansal for her expenses in flying the work over and developing the project.
