Space for Mind, Space for Art

From 28th of May to 3rd June 2012, an exhibition of Tibetan Buddhist Art entitled ‘Space for Mind, Space for Art: treasures of Tibetan Buddhism, and contemporary responses’ will be hosted by Diamond Way Buddhism in Lambeth.

Together with the extraordinary Tibetan Buddhist Art exhibition, a collection of contemporary art from both the local community and a national collection will be displayed, offering local artists from the area of Lambeth an opportunity to be have their artwork displayed alongside pieces of national importance.

The exhibition would not have been possible without the support of the international Diamond Way Buddhism Foundation (Buddhismus Stiftung Diamantweg).

Daily guided tours will acquaint visitors with the significance of the exhibits, which are not only beautiful artefacts, but have significance and practical use in the development of positive personal – and beyond-personal – qualities through meditation.

Lectures by experts in the field of Tibetology and Tibetan Buddhist Art will provide invaluable insights into fascinating fields as diverse as consciousness between lives and Buddhist Symbolism. We are also honoured to host Lama Jampa Thaye, who will give an address during the private view.

We are very grateful to the British Council, for the generous loan of ten pieces of contemporary art from the British Council Collection.

Any profits from the event will go to The Spring Project, a social enterprise that provides employment training for young people, and Diamond Way Buddhism UK, a registered charity that provides authentic Tibetan meditation to the public.

This will be the most significant exhibition combining contemporary art with the art of Tibetan Buddhism in Lambeth in recent years, and we do hope you can join us.
