“What’s special about Reimagine: Himalayan Art Now is that it really juxtaposes contemporary Himalayan artists with historical work, and so it makes it clear that we’re a people that are living in the present, and we’re not just a past relic. Our identities are evolving over time.”
— IMAGINE (a.k.a Sneha Shrestha)

Reimagine: Himalayan Art Now is a contemporary group exhibition of 32 artists from the Himalayas, Asia, and diaspora whose artworks are presented alongside objects from the Rubin Museum’s collection. Reimagine is on view in New York City March 15–October 6, 2024, and then travels to Chicago and beyond.
