TRACE - Representing Dolpo | A Talk with Tenzin Norbu

Tenzin Norbu was born in 1970 in Dolpo, Nepal. He studied traditional thangka painting as well as Buddhism from his father, following a lineage of painters that dates back more than 400 years. In addition to being a lama  he is also a leading social entrepreneur, encouraging education and sustainable development in one of Nepal’s most remote districts. Norbu’s art repertoire ranges from traditional imagery to unique depictions of daily life, religious practice, and landscape. His paintings were highlighted in the 1998 feature film Himalaya (Caravan), the only Nepali film to have been nominated for an Academy Award. Over the past fifteen years, Norbu’s work has been featured in exhibitions in global cities, from Kathmandu and New York City, to Aarhus, Monaco, Lucerne, Paris, Osaka, Tokyo, and Thimphu, Bhutan. Norbu was one of the featured artists both in Transcending Tibet, an exhibition organized by Trace Foundation  to mark its twentieth anniversary, and  Tradition Transformed: Tibetan Artists Respond, held at the Rubin Museum of Art in New York. Norbu is the illustrator of five children’s books, including Clear Sky, Red Earth: A Himalayan Story, a project on which he collaborated with Professor of Anthropology Sienna Craig and which has been published in both English and Tibetan.
A rare opportunity to hear the story and view the work of Tenzin Norbu: artist, hereditary lama and social enterpreneur who divides his time between his mountain community in Dolpo, a gallery in Kathmandu, and traveling around the world to promote his art and the work he does to support his community
