Program Description:

Founded in 2014 Dali Art Factory is one of the key hubs for the creative arts in Western China. Based in a tastefully renovated disused factory it contains a multitude of galleries and exhibition spaces, a museum dedicated to historic images of the region, bookshops, coffee shops a music studio and a broad assortment of privately operated studios all relating to the arts community that is centred around the facility.
With an ever increasing calendar of exhibitions and events the Dali Art factory is positioning itself as one of Asia’s leading artistic venues with a commitment to establishing Dali at the forefront of cultural and artistic expression in the region.
As a constantly expanding artistic community chooses to call Dali its home the Art Factory has responded by staging monthly bazaars showcasing traditional crafts and international cuisine as well as hosting classical and contemporary musicians in its auditorium.
The art factories ambitious expansions includes an Artist Residency starting in March at our newly built facility that includes both living and working spaces and to launch a bilingual online magazine with a strong focus on contemporary Chinese photography alongside articles on the global photography scene. We are planning to hold our inaugural Dali Photographic Museum competition in 2017 with an accompanying exhibition and publication to further establish the Art Factory as a major player on both the domestic and international stage.
