DESCRIPTION

This exhibition explores the use of religious text in contemporary art, from the straightforward to the ironic. It includes a broad range of media and approaches. Sandow Birk (Los Angeles, CA) will display work from his American Qur’an series; Johanna Bresnick (New Haven, CT) and Michael Cloud Hirschfeld (New York City) are exhibiting a sculptural work with Hebrew and English text from Leviticus; Martin Brief (St. Louis, MO) will include painstakingly detailed text-based drawings; Stephanie Kirk (Philadelphia) documents the changing messages found on religious signs; Nicholas Kripal (Philadelphia) will install one of his word-based floor pieces; Carole P. Kunstadt (West Hurley, NY) will offer book arts-based work that draws from the Hebrew Bible; and David Stephens (Philadelphia) will display Braille-based sculptures connected to well-known Bible parables.
