Join us for a conversation with Tenzing Rigdol, a leading Tibetan contemporary artist and founder of STUDIO 59 and Dialogue Artist Residency. He will discuss the launch of an exciting new project, the first residency program for Tibetan contemporary artists living in exile. The event will also include a benefit sale of Rigdol’s artworks to raise funds for the residency. (This is indeed a rare opportunity to acquire Rigdol’s art at ridiculously affordable rates).
Wednesday, Jan 10, 2018 (6:30-8:30pm)
The event is free and open to the public. Feel free to invite your friends.
Tenzing Rigdol is a contemporary Tibetan artist whose work ranges from painting, sculpture, drawing and collage, to digital, video-installation, performance art and site specific pieces. His paintings are the products of collective influences and interpretations of age-old traditions; they are influenced by philosophy; often capture the ongoing issues of human conflicts; and have strong political undertones – for him, politics is an unavoidable element in his art. Indeed in recent years Rigdol has become a focus for young Tibetan diaspora precisely because of the political nature of his art. Rigdol lives between New York and Dharamsala.
