  • 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.
