Ben Paljor Chatag ’15 Publishes in YESHE, a Journal of Tibetan Literature, Arts and Humanities

  • Allen Ginsberg Photo on display at ‘Transforming Minds,’ an exhibition co-curated  by Ben Paljor Chatag at Tibet House in New York City

    Philip Glass, Gelek Rimpoche, Allen Ginsberg, Michigan 1989
Studio Art and International Studies double major Ben Paljor Chatag ’15 recently published “Curatorial Reflections on ‘Transforming Minds: Kyabje Gelek Rimpoche and Friends, Photographs by Allen Ginsberg 1989-1997’ in Yeshe: A Journal of Tibetan Literature, Arts and Humanities. “I was inspired to curate the show because Rimpoche was my grandfather,” Chatag said. “I thought it was important to show pictures of Rimpoche and people around him interested in transforming their minds and society through love and compassion, which is what we continue to need in today’s world.”

Chatag takes us on a fascinating journey with the exhibit, which was featured at the Tibet House Gallery in New York City from September 2021 to February 2022.

He is currently doing a three-month residency in Miami’s Bakehouse Art Complex. The MMC community is so proud of his success!
