Project Description

Over the month of January, I will document the rich world of Sini Calligraphy, a hybrid artform practiced by Muslim calligraphers across China. Beginning in Lanzhou, a bustling city in central Western China, I will travel East by train to Linxia, Xi’an, Zhengzhou, and finally Beijing. There will be stops along the way in Muslim communities to visit mosques, interview famous calligraphers, and explore this powerful artistic expression of the Chinese Muslim experience.
