This calendar features the works of twelve contemporary Tibetan artists who offer an exciting glimpse into a new realm of Tibetan cultural expression. While Tibetans have little say in many of the rapid changes being driven by the Chinese government in Tibet, they have been dynamically active in areas such as music, art, literature, and film, working not only to preserve their culture but also to redefine and push the boundaries for new meaning and expression of Tibetan identity in the 21st century. While contemporary Tibetan art was a relatively unknown field twenty years ago, today there is growing interest and appreciation for it and an accompanying upsurge in exhibitions and symposiums taking place around the world.
