From religious kitsch to the periodic call to boycott an art exhibition or film, the relationship between art and religion has been nothing if not enduring and varied.
"Art [ in:through:against ] Religion" explores the changing place of religion throughout art history and within contemporary art practice today.
Through examples from his own art practice, alongside other historical and contemporary artworks, Hengeveld journeys through the place of religion within art, how it can be considered and engaged. His talk examines art from religious, non-religious and anti-religious perspectives and unpacks the potential value that can be found within each.
For our spring talk, Robert Hengeveld will be speaking on the relationship between art and religion. $10 admission includes appetizers, and there will be a cash bar. This is a discussion crafted for the artist as well as the non-artist, and addresses both a religious and secular perspective.
