Art for Tibet brings together artists and activists to celebrate, commemorate, and support the Tibetan peoples’ nonviolent freedom struggle against occupation.
This year Art for Tibet are thrilled to announce that legendary NYC hip-hop artist & Beastie Boys collaborator Cey Adams and French-Tibetan painter Marie-Dolma Chophel have joined this year’s Honorary Committee alongside returning members Shepard Fairey and Columbia Professor of Indo-Tibetan Studies, Robert Thurman.
For the first time this year an exhibition will run in tandem with the auction at the prestigious Gallery 8 in Harlem, giving a chance for extraordinary Tibetan artists to be showcased alongside leading contemporary artists for an extended period of time. An online auction will also run from October 25 - November 7, 2019. The live auction will take place on Thursday, November 7 and will be accompanied by a drinks reception and a performance from Tibetan musician and composer Tenzin Choegyal.
Art for Tibet showcases work from a diverse international pool of established and emerging artists, including a growing number of outstanding contemporary Tibetan artists. Highlights of donated works include Shepard Fairey’s peace-promoting Dove Geometric print as well as a Love Print from Cey Adams, a painting from master Tibetan painter Pema Rinzin, Budding Buddha, 3-flip lenticular print from Las Vegas digital artist James Stanford and a street art mixed media collage from prolific and influential first-generation NYC subway graffiti artist Al Diaz.
