Forbidden glimpses of Tibet in Toronto

Artists in Exile: #Reclaim Tibet at the Scrim4Rent Gallery in Kensington Market highlights Tibet’s independent past and the ongoing struggle for independence from China, says Sonam Chokey, national director of Students for a Free Tibet Canada. Tibet was invaded by the People’s Republic of China in 1950. In 1959 an uprising by Tibetans was brutally quashed, and the Dalai Lama and thousands of Tibetans went into exile. “The idea is to highlight the need for freedom for Tibet,” says Chokey. The show runs until the end of the month. “I want people to understand it’s not just a Tibetan movement, this is a human rights movement.”

This hand-stippled ink on paper work, depicting the Dalai Lama, is by Tenzin Rabyang, an artist and student at George Brown College originally from Kathmandu, Nepal. He draws his inspiration from his surroundings and everyday life, he says. Getting caught with any representation of the Dalai Lama in Tibet you can go to jail, says Sonam Chokey, national director of Students for a Free Tibet Canada.
