Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art

The exhibition "Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art" explores the tension between an ancient culture's unbroken artistic tradition of anonymity and the personality-driven world of contemporary art. By examining attitudes towards attribution in shifting cultural contexts, we ask the question: how do practitioners in the emerging field of Tibetan contemporary art react to and reinterpret their predecessors' anonymous past, and what role does anonymity play in the changing landscape of contemporary Tibetan culture?
