About This Item

Ridgefield, CT: Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, 2000. 142 pages, illustrations (some colour); 20 cm. Includes excerpts from a panel discussion held at the Drawing Center, NYC, October 8, 1999. Near fine. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Light shelfwear to wraps. "While it is acceptable to speak of spirituality when viewing and discussing recent artworks, speaking explicitly about God and religion is generally taboo in the largely secular art world. Faith: The Impact of Judeo-Christian Religion on Art at the Millennium explores the complex relationship of contemporary art to both Judaism and Christianity and highlights tendencies in art that are often ignored in the current discourse. Some of the artworks included in the exhibition and catalogue are a means of demonstrating religious faith; other works challenge religious traditions or embody doubt. Included are works by emerging and established artists such as Reverend Ethan Acres, Hermann Nitsch, Bettina Rheims, Andres Serrano, James Turrell, and Allan Wexler. Essays by Christian Echart, Eleanor Heartney, and Osvaldo Romberg elaborate on issues such as avantgardism as a kind of morality and the relationship of body art to religious practice.." - Publisher. CONTENTS: Creating faith, by Harry Philbrick; Internalizing the sacred: the interrogative artwork as a site of transubstantiation, by Christian Eckart; Art between heaven and earth, by Eleanor Heartney; Art to art. Life to life, by Osvaldo Romberg; Contexts: Jews and art at the end of the millennium, by Ori Soltes.. 1st. Paperback. Very Good. 8vo. Collectible.
