This intimate portrait of the current Dalai Lama, The Last Dalai Lama? explores his thoughts and feelings about reincarnating as the 15th Dalai Lama and shares his wisdom about keeping a tranquil mind while facing the challenges of aging and death. It addresses his current focus on science and Buddhism and interfaith dialogue. 23 years after making the ground-breaking film: Compassion in Exile: The Story of the 14th Dalai Lama, award winning filmmaker, Mickey Lemle (Ram Dass Fierce Grace; The Other Side of the Moon; Our Planet Earth; Hasten Slowly: The Journey of Sir Laurens van der Post) works closely with HH the Dalai Lama to create this important and timely film.
Stay after the screening for a Q&A with filmmaker Mickey Lemle and meet & greet cocktail reception.
Expanding the field of visual tropes, methods and materials, the 23 female artists on view will offer an artistic spectrum that ranges from the sublime to the utilitarian, from expressionism to precision, and from humor to drama. Curated by Janet Goleas.
With Artist-in-Residence Andrea Cote, the public will participate in collaborative printmaking and video. Participants will come together over the course of two months in a series of movement and art-making workshops culminating in a performance and large-scale tapestry.
