Anonymous showcases contemporary Tibetan art from the Donald and Shelley Rubin Collection. In collaboration with curator Rachel Perera Weingeist, the works shown express the unique methods at which contemporary Tibetan artists express themselves in the evolving situation of their nationality and culture. Many Tibetan artists who live in exile are included in the exhibition, reflecting the influence of the local communities on the evolution of their art. 27 artists based in 6 countries are included in the exhibition, including Benchung, Dedron, Gade, Nortse, Tsering Nyandak and Tsewang Tashi in Lhasa, Kesang Lamdark in Switzerland, Palden Weinreb, Tenzing Rigdol and Tsherin Sherpa in USA.
An exciting schedule of events has been planned for the opening reception on 21st September. The film Contemporary Tibetan Art will be screening at 4pm and 6pm. It would be introduced by guest curator Rachel Perera Weingeist and the participating artists. Rachel will also be conducting a tour at 5pm. At 6pm, Tenzing Rigdol will be executing Offerings, which will be performed for the first time in this venue.
