TRADITION TRANSFORMED: Tibetan Artists Respond
- Hood Museum Of Art (Dartmouth College)
- January 15 - March 13, 2011
- This exhibition features artists who grapple with issues of cultural and
artistic negotiation and who work with traditional forms in innovative ways.
Contemporary Tibetan artists are in a precarious position. While their work
is informed by Tibetan artistic traditions, the majority of these artists
do not live in Tibet, and some never have. As they forge a name for themselves
in the competitive art world, they must also try to find their own place
within Tibetís rich and formalized artistic legacy. Organized by the Rubin
Museum of Art, New York, and presented at the Hood Museum of Art through
the generosity of Yoko Otani Homma and Shunichi Homma M.D., Class of 1977,
the Cissy Patterson Fund, and the Hansen Family Fund.
