The Bank Windhoek Triennial’s Awards Ceremony and Exhibition Opening will take place on Thursday, 8 April 2021, the bank has announced. The public will be able to view the collection from Friday, 9 April 2021 until Saturday, 3 July 2021.
In a media statement, Bank Windhoek said that the Triennial received 277 submissions. From these, 96 are Windhoek-based, and the remaining 181 are from artists around the country.
A National Art Gallery of Namibia (NAGN) initiative in collaboration with Bank Windhoek, the official opening of the Triennial will be live-streamed on the NAGN Facebook page, and exhibited in the NAGN Galleries and its website. “We will be engaging a global audience through virtual platforms and with an electronic catalogue,” said NAGN's chief executive officer, Snobia Kaputu.
Kaputu added that the concepts received this year are powerful with exceptionally mastered techniques. “These submissions range in various disciplines, from more traditional acrylic pieces on canvas, oils, and sculptures to more innovative approaches like drawing with wire and painting with string and nails.”

The Bank Windhoek Triennial is an essential platform for networking and adds to the artists’ profile. “The Triennial celebrates visual art in Namibia while providing a platform for the development and promotion of the Namibian visual art industry,” said Bank Windhoek’s Head of Corporate Social Investments, Sponsorship, and Events, Bronwyn Moody. “Artists had transformed their Covid-19 experience into captivating masterpieces this year.”

Staged every three years, the first Bank Windhoek Triennial took place in 2008, with three more since (2011, 2014, and 2017), bringing it to its fifth edition scheduled to take place in April. The Triennial was scheduled to take place in 2020 but had to be postponed due to COVID-19. Subsequently, artists were allowed more time to submit their work, with the deadline moved to 6 November 2020.
