Tibet House US Gallery is delighted to partner with The Allen Ginsberg Estate and Jewel Heart International this fall on an exhibition of unique images by celebrated visionary poet Allen Ginsberg.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997), best known as one of the most influential poets of the 20th Century, is also recognized for his photography, intimately capturing friendships from the birth of the Beat Generation through the countercultural, cultural, and literary circles he helped inspire. Allen’s lifelong spiritual quest, beginning early on with visionary experiences involving 19th century English mystic & poet William Blake, ultimately evolved into a deep commitment to and practice of Tibetan Buddhism in the final decades of his life.

This extraordinary selection of images focuses on Allen's Tibetan Buddhist teacher and friend, the renowned Tibetan Buddhist master, Kyabje Gelek Rimpoche (1938 - 2017), and his friends and students.

Timed entry tickets are available now. Please email sonam@tibethouse.us for reservations. Estate prints and copies will also be available for sale, and the exhibition will be viewable online at www.tibethouse.us.
