The Himalayan region-often referred to as the "roof of the world,"-has traditionally been considered a domain where time stands still. However the Himalayas, as all other places on earth, are undergoing rapid political and cultural change in our Anthropocene age. This change is marked by many forms of contemporary agency, ranging temporally from the durational to the momentary, from present-day to deeply historic ways of engaging both the global and the local. Please join artists Dinesh Shrestha and Tsherin Sherpa, and curator and scholar Debashish Banerji, for a conversation about the co-existing timescapes that comprise the present for Nepal and Tibet.

More about Himalayan Contemporary:
November 2017-February 2018

In the Desai | Matta Gallery at CIIS we are exhibiting the work of three artists through February, 2018: AngTsherin Sherpa, whose paintings deconstruct mandala forms to express the semantic ambiguity of traditional signs in the contemporary world; Newari artist Dinesh Charan Shrestha, who renders Buddhist and Hindu deities in hypnotic detail using post-Renaissance realism; and Youdhishtir Maharjan, who creates "meaningless" repetitive visual gestures inspired equally by Samuel Beckett and Buddhist sand mandalas.

DATE/TIME:
Friday, November 3
6:30pm-9:00pm

LOCATION:
DESAI | MATTA GALLERY, CIIS Main Building
