This exhibit brings together contemporary artists working in a variety of media to engage the unfolding dynamic of sacred texts. Works incorporate an array of sacred texts and highlight interventions, alterations, and adaptations of such materials. Ancient and contemporary sacred books and objects from diverse traditions are also included in the exhibit to enhance an understanding of the transpotency of sacred texts across time and traditions. The exhibit is curated by Michelle Townsend and highlights the work of Renée Billingslea, Mel Day, Meg Hitchcock, Thomas Ingmire, and others.
Dialoguing with Sacred Texts is part of the 2012-13 Bannan Institute Sacred Texts in the Public Sphere and is co-sponsored by the Ignatian Center.
