Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art reflects upon the complex relationship between ancient Tibet’s artistic tradition of anonymity and contemporary artists’ search for a voice in the present. This fully illustrated catalogue, designed by Philipp Hubert and co-published by ArtAsiaPacific and Samuel Dorksy Museum of Art, State University of New York at New Paltz, includes texts by exhibition curator Rachel Perera Weingeist, curator and writer David Elliott and Tibetan cultural activist Jamyang Norbu. Participating artists Penba Wangdu, Tenzing Rigdol and Tsherin Sherpa also contribute essays sharing personal insight into their artistic practice.
This catalogue is published in conjunction with the exhibition “Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art” at Samuel Dorsky Museum in New Paltz which features over 50 works of painting, sculpture, installation and video art by 27 Tibetan artists. The exhibition runs from July 20–December 15, 2013, and will later travel to The Fleming Museum of Art, University of Vermont and Queens Museum of Art, New York.
