MITHILA COSMOS: THE CYCLES OF LIFE by SC SUMAN

READING THE WORLD THROUGH THE MITHILA LENS

SC Suman’s ‘Mithila Cosmos: The Cycles Of Time’ peers into the contemporary world with help from the Mithila genre and Hindu mythology

Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future,
And time future contained in time past.
If all time is eternally present
All time is unredeemable.
What might have been is an abstraction
Remaining a perpetual possibility
Only in a world of speculation.
What might have been and what has been
Point to one end, which is always present.

Taken from Four Quartets by TS Eliot

  • WHAT: Mithila Cosmos: The Cycles Of Time
  • WHEN: Dec 10, 2021 to Jan 15, 2022
  • WHERE: Siddhartha Art Gallery, Babermahal Revisited

Call for participation in a short film making competition on ‘Gender Equality’

Background: Gender has been a cross cutting issue for the European Union in all of its development cooperation interventions globally and in Nepal. While there has been some uneven progress in addressing girls’ and women’s rights, not a single country, around the world, is on track to empower girls and achieve gender equality by 2030. To make matters worse the COVID situation around the world has been affecting the girls and women the most. This is because a large number of them work in the informal sector. Gender violence is reportedly on the rise after the onslaught of the COVID pandemic in Nepal and there is a glaring need to raise awareness against gender violence and at the same time show solidarity with the ongoing movement to advocate and establish gender rights at all levels of the Nepali society.

Phortse. Home to more Everest summiteers than anywhere else on earth.

Up until the creation of the centre, most Sherpas were climbing Everest without basic climbing skills, making their work even more dangerous.

From the construction of the KCC headquarters, at 3,800 metres, to Dumji, a Buddhist festival for the ages, these are the stories of Phortse.

Come join us for the screening, the screening is free and open to the public; please note that seating is extremely limited. doors open at 5pm, all seating options are first come and first serve. Meanwhile you can grab your favorite drink and food from our cafeteria throughout the movie.

Beyond Auto Mode Photography Workshop – February 2020

Do you use your camera’s automatic mode to take pictures? This means you have given up control of your photography. Although you push the shutter button to actually take the image but that just makes you a button-pusher, not an active participant in the process. Photography, in its purest form, is a mix of art and science. Each of us can be “photographer” by taking control of our cameras and making images with intention.

Do you ever look at your photos and wonder why they are so dark or so light? Do you wonder why some images are blurry, but images made two frames later are not? Do you look at your images and wish you could do better?

Anyone can make an incredible picture. You just have to get beyond ‘auto mode’ and start making pictures.

Baidam, walking through silence screen print exhibition

“Once upon a time Pokhara was a mellow, sleepy town.
Lakeside then was called ‘Baidam’. It was the only place in Nepal where even buffaloes speak English’, according to locals. Continental breakfast with fresh coffee and (magic) mushroom omelets was served in small, tattered huts. Now life around lakeside has transformed so much that it is rare to see a buffalo lazing about. The name ‘Baidam’ has been long forgotten.”Bikalpa Art Center is pleased to present the 2nd solo exhibition of Mr. Prabod Shrestha. The exhibition will feature 21 pieces of screen print works with juxtaposition of his poetry. Mr. Shrestha’s work shows the reflection of minimalism, meditativeness, and intuition. The source of inspiration is the characteristic of Lakeside Pokhara (Baidam) and the deep connection with the nature and simplicity around.

“नेपाल दर्शन २०२०” सास्कृतिक तथा पर्यटन विधाको फोटो प्रतियोगिता
प्राकृतिक सौन्दर्य, साँस्कृतिक सम्पदा, धार्मिक वस्तुस्थिति, पुरातात्विक र ऐतिहासिक धरोहरहरुका कारण हाम्रो देश नेपाल सँग प्रचुर पर्यटनको सम्भावना छ । हिमाल, पहाड र तराईको भौगोलिक विबिधता संगै विबिध प्राकृतिक र संस्कृतिकमा बिभित्र जातजाति, धर्म, सांस्कृति र सभ्यताहरुले भरिमूर्ण छ, हाम्रो देश नेपाल । यो प्रकृतिक र संस्कृतिक अनुपम उहार नै नेपालको अमुल्य गहना हो । तसर्थ यस्ता अनूपम उपहारलाई नेपालको सबृद्धि संग जोडर यसको उचिति संरक्षण गर्दै प्रवद्र्धन गर्दै लैजान सकेको खण्डामा देश समृद्धिको यात्रामा अगाडी बढेने कुरामा दुईमत छैन ।

यसको लागी देश भरी छरिएर रहेका बृहत्तर सम्भावनाहरुलाई पर्यटकीय दृष्टिकोण बाट अगाडी पढन सक्नु पर्छ । हाल चिनिएका भनौ वा चर्चामा आएर आन्तरीक तथा बह्य पर्यटकको नजरमा परेका स्थानहरुलाई अझ बृहत बनाउदै लैजान सक्नु पर्छ । प्रकृतिक संस्कृतिक रुपले महत्वपूर्ण वा रमणीय भएर पनि पर्यटकिय दृष्टिकोण बाट पछि परेको वा चर्चामा नआएका स्थानहरुको पनि उचित प्रचार प्रसार गर्दै चर्चामा ल्याई पर्यटकिय गन्तब्य वनाउन जरुरि देखिन्छ । यो सबै सम्भावनहरुलाई एउटै मालामा उनेर एकिकृत ढंगले अगाडी बढाउन हामीले यो प्रयास गर्न लागेका हौं । तसर्थ हाम्रो पर्यटकीय क्षेत्र र सम्भावना उजागर गदै लैजान सकेको खण्डमा मात्र समृद्धिको सपना पुराहुन सक्छ । सरकारले घोषणा गरेको भ्रमण वर्ष सन् २०२० सफल हुन सक्छ । यस विषयमा एक बृहत्तर सामाजिक संवाद र बहसको आवश्यकता छ । यो आवश्यकतालाई मनन गर्दैे नेपालमा रहेका महत्वपूर्ण पर्यटकीय स्थलहरुको प्रवद्र्धन गर्न सहयोग गर्ने हेतुले राष्ट्रिय फोटोपत्रकार समुह एनएफपीजे नेपालद्धारा “नेपाल दर्शन २०२०” नामक फोटो प्रतियोगिता गर्न लागेको सहर्ष जानकारी गराउन पाउँद हर्षित छौ ।

Thinking Queer Archives, Art Practice and Activism

Where is our place? Where do we belong? Can the archive be a site where we can discover and name ourselves? Can it be a site where we build solidarities? Can the excavation of queer experience, queer desires and queer traumas allow us to re-examine our inherited past knowledge and imagine new futures?
photo.circle is pleased to invite you to this one-day discussion seminar to collectively think about and discuss queer archives, art practice and activism through conversations on how, as curators, researchers, archivists, educators and activists, we can remember, recognize, and witness queer lives across South Asia.
10:00am – 1:00pm
We will spend the first half of the day with our curators in residence; Sumitra and Aziz Sohail, who will share with us their work as queer art and cultural practitioners in South Asia and the diaspora;
Presentation 1: Sumitra will share her curatorial process including her experience of executing the Students Biennale at Kochi Muziris Biennale (2016-17) with 14 other curators, curating the local Pride festivals in Bangalore, curating the archive and interpreting archival materials in art installations, and her research as a doctoral scholar.
Presentation 2: Aziz Sohail will present his curatorial practice based between Los Angeles and Karachi focusing on some recent projects including In Search of Baba Singh (Los Angeles, 2019), Making Space (Delhi, 2018) and collaborative projects with Abdullah Qureshi and Zulfikar Ali Bhutto (Philadelphia and Berlin, 2018) as a way to think about a queer curatorial outlook and bringing together various interdisciplinary and transnational perspectives.
Presentations will be followed by open discussion on key questions about curatorial practice as queer individuals and some of the struggles faced when speaking about queer issues in the regional and national art world in South Asia and diaspora.
_____
1:00pm – 2:00pm – Lunch (provided)
_____
2:00pm – 5:00pm
