"In Tibetan, the word for body is 'lü', which means 'something you leave behind,' like baggage. Each time we say 'lü', it reminds us that we are only travelers, taking temporary refuge in this life and this body." Sogyal Rinpoche
Casa Lü is also a place where you can take temporary refuge to concentrate on your artistic practice. The aim of the program is for residents to focus on the production of their work while creating a network and dialogue within emerging artists from all over the world. The participants live and work in Casa Lü. While working on their personal projects they are encouraged to visit Mexico City's dynamic art scene. The organisers provide a calendar with openings and other artistic events, as well as a list of recommendations for museums, galleries and other local attractions.
There are weekly meetings for work critiques, discussions and other activities. Residents are invited to present their work in a group show at the end of their stay.
They have 5 bedrooms. 3 with a private bathroom and 2 with a shared bathroom.
2 studios, a private one and a shared one for 4 residents.
