Leigh Miller in Conversation with the Artists

Leigh Miller in Conversation with the Artists
Wednesday, November 12, 2014

Join us for the second event of Transcending Tibet: A Preview, a roundtable discussion with contemporary Tibetan art scholar Leigh Miller and the artists, followed by a special extended opening of the gallery. Traveling from Nepal, Italy, Switzerland, Amsterdam, and Queens, these artists will speak on everything from their unconventional choices of materials (silkscreen appliqué collage, incense-burned rice paper, monastic robes, and much more) to negotiating Tibet's rich legacy of traditional art and a fast-changing world.
