DESCRIPTION

What role does religion play in the work of contemporary artists? Viewers and critics of today's art may fail to find the connection, yet it exists and in multiple forms and meanings. Franklin Sirmans, department head and curator of contemporary art at LACMA, and artists William Cordova, Amalia Mesa-Bains, and John Outterbridge explore the intersections between artistic practice and explorations of religion and spirituality.

Presented in conjunction with Transcultural Pilgrim: Three Decades of Work by José Bedia.
