Sufi Shrines in Uyghur China: A Conversation with Photographer and Video Artist Lisa Ross

In a talk to be held October 7 at 5:30 in the Sarah Lawrence College Heimbold Visual Arts Center she will present a short video and photographs of the shrines she visited over a decade in the Xinjiang region and discuss her work with members of the Sarah Lawrence College faculty. Ross’s photographic pilgrimage to these sites has been shown in several exhibitions.
