AIM AND VISION

 

'TIBET ART NOW' aims to contribute to recognition of the contemporary art of Tibet in a totally positive way. It wants to add a genuine contribution to the development of the culture of Tibet for Tibetan artists outside Tibet as well as inside Tibet. The exhibition shows the art that bridges the ancient art of Tibet with the new artistic imagery of Tibet's new generations of artists. The vision is to offer viewers a stepping stone to a possible future development of the culture and the art of the Tibetan people.

If profit arises from this exhibtion it will be donated to the initiation of an educational art project in Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, in the near future, in which artists from inside and outside Tibet can work together.

'TIBET ART NOW' fully agrees with H.H. the Dalai Lama when he states in the book 'His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama of Tibet talks to Louwrien Wijers':

'In order to develop a certain inner progress the artist's thing is very much influential and helpful. The artists with their art have a powerful means to give a message. The task of the artist is of crucial importance in society, particularly to strive for a less aggressive, more peaceful, more gentle humanity. Art is especially helpful for those people whose minds are always being directed outward, because with this art they need to turn themselves inward."
