The exhibition brings together two perspectives on these themes. One is through works by Tashi Norbu, a Tibetan artist educated in both traditional Thangka painting and contemporary western art. Another is through his selection of works from his contemporaries, both established and emerging. This reflects recent discussions between Tashi and his counterparts on the proper contextualization, among Tibetans and for the public of emerging artists in the new Tibetan Contemporary genre. They illustrate not only each individual perspective, but also their shared experiences which, taken together, make their work a comprehensive presentation of Tibetan culture itself.
