Mongol Visions: Winged Horses and Shamanic Skies

The Tibet House presents the work of some of Mongolia's greatest young artists.

December 1, 2011 12:00am to February 15, 2012 12:00am

For more than two thousand years the Mongols have dominated the center of the Silk Road. Here, under the guidance of the great Khaans like Genghis and Kublai, the ancient traditions of shamanism and Indo-Tibetan Buddhism merged into a profound stream. The vast influence of Mongolia on Euro-Asian civilization is only now being fully appreciated.  

Tibet House is delighted to join in the celebration of this inspiring and magical legacy by hosting an exhibition with some of Mongolia’s greatest young artists whose works bring together the integrity of tradition and the creative impulse of the contemporary aesthetic. 

These celebrated artists include Gankhuyag Natsag, whose paintings, statues and traditional lama dance masks have shown in more than a dozen cities around the world; D. Soyolmaa, renowned for bringing the clarity and precision of traditional Buddhist art into a contemporary ambiance; T. Nurmaa, famed for her ability to capture on canvas the radiance and raw intensity of the Mongolian spirit; D. Bulgantuya, an acclaimed artist who has received rave reviews in Sofia, Budapest, Warsaw, Kiev, and Vienna; and Ts. Bolor, especially known for her “aesthetics of the feminine.”  

Opening Reception: Thursday, December 1 from 6:00pm – 8:00 pm
