Celebrating artistic diversity

13 January 2020 | Art and Entertainment

Snobia Kaputu; NAGN CEO; “We look forward to innovative works of art and encourage all artists to enter.”

Bank Windhoek in collaboration with the National Art Gallery of Namibia (NAGN) launched the 2020 edition of the Bank Windhoek Triennial on 9 January.
The competition is open to all artists with Namibian citizenship or permanent residence.
Staged every three years, the fifth Bank Windhoek Triennial will again showcase a high quality of diverse artwork produced by Namibian artists.
The first Bank Windhoek Triennial took place in 2008, with this year’s edition scheduled for September 2020.
Sponsored by Bank Windhoek and organised by the NAGN, the triennial celebrates visual art in Namibia, while contributing to the development and promotion of the local visual art industry.
The exhibition that results from this competition, also provides an opportunity to engage in dialogue around cultural diversity within Namibian society to promote unity in celebrating diversity.
There are a number of exciting prizes up for grabs in the various categories.
“The NAGN is delighted to continue partnering with Bank Windhoek as its main sponsor for the 2020 Bank Windhoek Triennial,” says the NAGN’s CEO, Snobia Kaputu. “We look forward to innovative works of art and encourage all artists to enter. This is not only an opportunity for artists to win prizes, but also an important platform for networking and adds to their portfolios.”
A panel of local and international judges will select the winners and art for the exhibition. The exhibition opens on 3 September and runs until 7 November.
For more information, call 061 231160, 061 231391 or 081 806 8694/2 or email [email protected] or [email protected] Application forms can be downloaded on www.nagn.org.na or www.bankwindhoek.com.na.
