An exhibition exploring Tibet's cultural impact on the rest of the
world is opening in Oxford.

Organised by Oxford-based artist Catriona Bass, the exhibition will
be showing at the Said Business School in Frideswide Square between
August 4 and August 30.

Tibetan Pathways will feature the work of three artists - Ms Bass,
Vered Aviv, and Ugyen Choephell. The work is inspired by Tibetan
spirituality, culture and politics.

Ms Bass said: "I spent a year-and-a-half living and working in Tibet
in the mid 1980s and it was an amazing experience.

"This exhibition will be looking at how the image of the country has
been used around the world by different people to explore their own identities.

"Tibet, perhaps more than many places, has emerged as a powerful
symbol in the world.

"The exhibition does have a political theme, but is not intended to
be propagandist."
