Witte de With is excited to unfurl her 2013 program with Tulkus 1880 to 2018, a mastodontic artwork and work in progress by Paola Pivi. Based on extensive international research and aimed at creating a complete collection of portraits and basic information on all the tulkus of the world—who in Tibetan Buddhism are the recognized reincarnations of previous Buddhist masters—from the beginning of photography until today, from all the schools of Tibetan Buddhism and Bon, and from all the areas of the world where these religions are practiced, this growing survey has until now collected over 1100 photographic portraits.
