Tradition Transformed: Tibetan Artists Respond features nine Tibetan artists-Dedron, Gonkar Gyatso, Losang Gyatso, Kesang Lamdark, Tenzin Norbu, Tenzing Rigdol, Pema Rinzin, Tsherin Sherpa and Penba Wangdu-who are trained in traditional painting and the strict interpretations prescribed by Buddhist religio-spiritual formulas and artistic norms, from which they break by experimenting with alternative media and extracting sacred symbols from their religious context, repurposing them for their own self-expression. Included are essays by HG Masters, Michael R. Sheehy, and Anna Bremm, as well as an interview with Paola Vanzo of the Trace Foundation in New York.
