Description

Concurrent with "Doorway to an Enlightened World," the Carlos Museum exhibits new works by contemporary artist Gonkar Gyatso. In this exhibition, Gyatso, a Tibetan-born British artist, explores contemporary Tibetan identity through a series of large-scale photographs depicting members of a single family living in Lhasa. Gyatso composes the photographs as a family album, revealing the complex and varied professional, societal and personal roles of each family member. This work stems from “My Identity,” a 2003 series of photographs in which the artist explored his own personal ideological shifts across the political, social and national boundaries that constitute “Tibet.”
