Introducing the exhibition he curated at Tibet House, New York City, evening of 19th November 2009.
"Masterpieces of Contemporary Buddhist & Hindu Tantric Art Newar and Tibetan Paintings from the Collection of Robert Beer".
"This exhibition features many new paintings made by the finest Newar and Tamang artists of Nepal over the last six years, revealing how this contemporary renaissance of modern tantric art has continued to flourish amidst the chaos of the Kathmandu Valley. The Newars are the original inhabitants of this once fertile valley, with their own ancient culture, traditions and language, and they were responsible for much of the painting, woodcarving and bronze casting that we now define as ‘Early Tibetan Art’.
