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.

Art in Uncertainty: Peak Art Gallery and the Tibetan Artists of McLeod Ganj

Dharamshala: With the combined stresses of paying for materials, finding a workspace, and balancing one’s personal interests with audience appeal, being an artist is never a profession for the faint of heart.  But to survive as an artist, while simultaneously holding a status as a Tibetan refugee in India?  Doing so would surely be incredibly difficult, if not impossible.  Nevertheless, in McLeod Ganj of Upper Dharamshala, a small community of artists is doing just this, with the help of Tashi Gyatso’s Peak Art Gallery.

My Story: On What It Means to Own Land

Dharamshala: Like many I came to McLeod Ganj to help the Tibetan's-in-exile, I arrived expecting to work in the construction industry, as that is my occupation back home. Instead I was lucky enough to be asked to volunteer at The Tibet Post to write articles. I was also lucky, in that I formed a friendship with a young Tibetan man. I asked if I could write his story, but he has taken the initiative and has written it himself, and I much prefer it like this. It is real. It is titled "My Story".
