Join us for a very special evening as we celebrate the lifelong, vital work of the late André Alexander and the Tibet Heritage Fund in the preservation, conservation, and documentation of traditional architecture in Tibet, with a launch party for the new publication, The Lhasa House: Typology of an Endangered Species.
Come to be energized by an exhibition, engaged by a film, or inspired by a talk. We hope you will join us as we invite an eclectic roster of seasoned and emerging artists to show their work in our space.
Join artist Michela Martello at Here Now from November 16 to December 1, while she recreates her Brooklyn art studio in our beautiful space in the West Village. Our walls will be covered by an array of her mixed media artwork, from hand stitched vintage textiles to unassuming material like cardboard and paper as well as hand builded ceramics.
Drawing on their extensive background in Tibetan art, Leslie Nguyen and Terris Temple will present a series of recent works ranging from traditional designs, contemporary bird and flowers to multi leveled silk abstract compositions.
This documentary provides a glimpse into a world rarely seen by the West—and tells the incredible story of two Westerners working side-by-side with Tibetan seamstresses to reclaim a piece of history. The film features amazing archival footage about the re-creation of the giant silk appliqués of Tsurphu Monastery in Tibet, after the 400 years old originals were destroyed during the Cultural Revolution.
