NEW YORK---For over 1,000 years, art has been a crucial facet of Tibetan culture, namely, spiritual art. Intimately associated with Buddhism, art revolved around the religious and philosophical ideals of the faith. "Transcending Tibet: Mapping Contemporary Tibetan Art in the Global Context," presented by the Trace Foundation, in partnership with Arthub, runs until April 12, 2015 at Rogue Space Chelsea in New York City.
