Description: Featuring photographs of sacred landscapes in northwestern China by New York-based artist Lisa Ross. In and around the Taklamakan Desert, Ross photographs Muslim shrines, or mazars, often adorned with recycled flags and fabrics. Ross's remarkable images are largely without the presence of the human figure, allowing the viewer to inhabit a space that is unmediated and complex.
