Ever since the pandemic broke out, Nepal has taken a huge hit. Most businesses have halted or taken a backseat in the midst of Coronavirus. In a bid to uplift spirits and explore some wonderful art from the comfort of your homes, the Museum of Nepali Art (MoNA) is organising a virtual art exhibition in Nepal. By Amitha Ameen

The tourism industry accounts for almost 8 per cent of the Republic of Nepal’s economy. But thanks to the COVID-19 outbreak, all the activities in the country have come to a standstill. Movie theatres, public places, and all other outdoor and public activities have been closed.

But thanks to the Museum of Nepali Art (MoNA), there will now be some cultural relief even while staying home. A virtual art exhibition in Nepal titled, ‘Inception,’ will showcase a collection of Nepali masterpieces in a 360-degree virtual exhibition on June 5, 2020.

The works of some of the most talented, renowned, and traditional Nepali artists will be displayed at this virtual art exhibition, for you to enjoy. The original versions of these artworks will be housed in MONA at Kathmandu.

“This exhibition is a tribute to our forefathers, our dedicated artists of the past and present and for the sustenance of our heritage,” read a statement on the museum’s social media handle. Earlier on May 14, 2020, MONA had organised the first-ever virtual contemporary art exhibition in Nepal, titled ‘Tangential Stress.’
