Tales of Muted Spirits—Dispersed Threads—Twisted Shangri-La

The Rubin Museum of Art

New York, USA
Apr 23, 2022 To Nov 27, 2022


Detail: The first-ever Nepal Pavilion debuts at the 59th International Art Exhibition—La Biennale di Venezia in 2022 with Tales of Muted Spirits—Dispersed Threads—Twisted Shangri-La curated by artists Sheelasha Rajbhandari and Hit Man Gurung and featuring the work of artist Tsherin Sherpa.

Trained in the art of thangka painting, Tsherin Sherpa (born in Kathmandu, 1968) is regarded as one of Nepal’s foremost contemporary artists. For the Biennale Arte 2022, he will collaborate with artists across the country to draw upon materials from a shared history and incorporate accounts encoded in oral cultures, woven languages, and quotidian rituals to implicate an intersectional and intertwined past that problematizes contradictory conceptualizations of Nepal as well as the broader Himalayan region.
