Rosaline Kyo
Since the mid-1990s, Tibetan artists working in Lhasa began to explore contemporary modes of expression that embody the rapidly shifting world around them. These artists have combined their visual traditions with non-traditional mediums to express their views on contemporary issues, such as migration, displacement, and identity. Come join us as we explore the representational strategies artists working in Tibet and abroad have adopted and adapted. From works by artists trained in traditional thangka paintings to video works produced by academically trained artists, we will examine how artists both local and global face these issues.
