Ritual Art Today: Contemporary and Non-Traditional Religious Objects


Type: Exhibition Opportunities [View all]
Posted by: Duquesne University
Deadline: Thu, February 1st, 2018

Ritual is important to religious practice through beauty, personal connection, and the senses. Today artisans, craftspeople and artists want to add to that experience. They use non-traditional materials, explore new shapes, create contraptions, and look to avant-garde art. These artists enrich, explore and interpret religious practice through material choices and artistic techniques. 

This exhibition is open to artists, craftspeople, and artisans of all faiths. Submissions must relate to the theme of contemporary and non-traditional ritual objects in clear ways. While this exhibition explores real objects, only photographs and 2D prints of these objects will be shown. 

Application Due Date: Feb. 1, 2018

Exhibition Dates: April 3 - 19, 2018

In celebration of curator Ben Schachter’s new book, all complete entries will receive a copy of Image, Action, and Idea in Contemporary Jewish Art published by the Pennsylvania State University Press.
