thePULL: the Rhizome and its Art Residents of Lijiang   Leave a comment

I previously described a small little place in Lijiang east of Lijiang old town (south south east of Pullman Lijiang) having an art gallery displayed until July 1st. Now, let’s investigate the residents further.

The Rhizome Art Gallery is also a popular and possibly only art residencies active in Lijiang. Artists from all over the world come to experience the natural surroundings and the culture of the many local tribes, or nationalities 少数民族 (ShaoShuMinZu).

ECHENIQUE José – LEON CANNOCK Alejandro PERU

Although some have already left their stay at the Rhizome,they all have a stretch of inspiration to the locals, and have learnt from them. They are involved in the community, but create a peace of their own in their works.

See more about these artists at http://rhizome-lijiang.org/en/residents.php or explore them yourself below.
Most of the links on the site do not work, but some require a simple fix. Go to the link by deleting the starting names.
