Tibet Art Now: Nostalgia over the Edges

A navigation to the Tibetan Contemporary Art where Tibetans mark their soul imprints and identity, especially those living in exile or in a harsh environment. A fusion of Tibetans Artists in India, Nepal, Bhutan and Sikkim, yet Western Artists who see Tibet as a mystic land and a challenge in Art at the threshold of 21st century. An exhibition that brings up queries and quests and a conversation regarding land and identity and a reference to a lost horizon; manifesting and marking a unique ethnic Cultural Art of no space and time. Images that have become beloved of the imagined Tibet and a nostalgia of a place never visited by most of the Artists.

Indigenous portraits, wooden carvings, traditional motifs, symbolic components, moments that confront the stereotypes, ephemeral scenes, images of a screaming silence in a lack of sound to escape, semi spiritual, or spiritual, mandalas carriers of philosophical and Buddhist teachings, a language containing a foreign influence rooted in the original troupes of Tibet; depictions made out of mineral pigments framed in colourful silk brocade. Figural representation of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, confirming the dominant tropes of Tibetan Buddhism in the West, where the practice can be taken as Tibet’s cultural heritage and asset.
At the Museum of Contemporary Tibetan Art. Where you find the trace of Tibetan culture, politics, customs and abundant subjects on Buddha’s mystical words and teachings.
