As in earlier periods\, the art of the 20th and 21st centuri es engages in a dialogue with the important themes of religion\, ritual\, a nd performance. Works from the AMAM collection by artists from diverse back grounds and artistic approaches reflect a broad array of responses to these concepts. Examples by artists such as Louise Bourgeois and photographer Ho lly Wright address religion\, ranging from the Christian tradition to other beliefs from around the world. Other artists like Jackie Winsor employ the idea of ritual as an art-making strategy\, while Alison Saar and José Bedi a present it as a subject. Ephemeral performance art is documented in works by artists including Joseph Beuys\, Dennis Oppenheim\, and Ana Mendieta.
