footnotes to foregoing posts
I have corrected a couple of errors in my previous post about the now-closed show of Tibetan contemporary art from the Rubins' personal collection. I wish I had time and information to write more about what Norbu is doing in Nepal, or Tsering Nyandak in Lhasa. Like Gade, he seems to be commenting sincerely on contemporary situations (though Gade's "new Buddhas" using Spiderman et al are also eminently salable in London, creating an undecidable situation). Tsering Nyandak returned to Tibet after being educated in exile, and this alone makes me want to know more.
