In the final week of The Rubin Daily Offering, artists with ties to the Himalayan region share creative practices that inspire their work, inviting us to think creatively and collaboratively.
In the first episode of the week, Rubin Museum Executive Director Jorrit Britschgi introduces Tsherin Sherpa’s Wish-fulfilling Tree, currently on view in the Rubin Museum’s exhibition Shrine Room Projects. Artist Tsherin Sherpa then invites viewers to share an image of a treasured object as a collective act to create connection during this time of separation.
Tsherin Sherpa is an artist and filmmaker who is currently featured in the exhibition Shrine Room Projects: Shiva Ahmadi / Genesis Breyer P-Orridge / Tsherin Sherpa. He is one of the foremost artists in his generation from the Himalayan region. He is based in Kathmandu, Nepal, where he is engaged in bringing more visibility to the Himalayan arts.
