Gonkar Gyatso, Tibet’s pre-eminent contemporary artist whose personal, political and often humorous work bridges Eastern and Western culture, will present his solo exhibition “Pop Phraseology” in Hong Kong at Pearl Lam Galleries.

With a long interest in material and pop culture, Gyatso often combines references to traditional Tibetan life with references to the global mass-media culture that is constantly interacting with, and shaping, our current perspectives of cultural identity. By confronting the undeniable bond between his homeland’s religion and politics, Gyatso throws into question what is considered traditional, while addressing the many new cultural hybrid identities to which globalisation has given rise.
