Peak Art: A Contemporary Tibetan Art Gallery in Dharamshala

Dharamshala: - Culture is an indispensable tool in the expression of both personal and collective identity. The Tibetan culture in particular is increasingly fractured as it is suspended without geographical grounding, and the identities of Tibetans living in exile as well as those who remain in Tibet teeter on precarious footing. By keeping the practice of Tibetan art alive, contemporary artists preserve the hope that Tibetan culture will be upheld by future generations, whether living in exile or in Tibet, while building artistic and cultural bridges into the future.
