We are a creative community that works in harmony to inspire artistic and personal growth through art.
"In Tibetan, the word for body is 'lü', which means 'something you leave behind'. Each time we say 'lü', it reminds us that we are only travelers, taking temporary refuge in this life and this body."
Casa Lü serves as a sanctuary where you can seek temporary refuge to fully immerse yourself in art and dedicate your focus to artistic practice. Here, you will have the time and space to experiment with newideas and work without interruption from the daily obligations of life.
Our program is created by artists, for artists. Our purpose is to cultivate a global dialogue among artists while showcasing our vibrant city. We encourage residents to explore Mexico City's dynamic art scene. We arrange weekly excursions, provide a curated list of museums, galleries, and local attractions, and keep residents informed about exhibition openings and other events. Given that the majority of our residents are international, our residency program is conducted entirely in English. To date, Casa Lü has hosted more than 230 artists from 23 different countries.
