We are pleased to announce that Shiyu Zheng is the winner of the spring 2017 Heliconia Grant!

Shiyu will use her grant to visit the Rubin Museum of Art's extensive Himalayan Art collection and continue her research on portrait thangkas of the sixth Panchen Lama; these portraits epitomized the artistic exchange between Tibet and central China during the Qing dynasty. At CORAI we believe Shiyu's work is imperative to widening the scope of art research and its meaning in contemporary practice. We wish her the best!
