BEYOND THE AGE OF REASON
Beyond the Age of Reason features artists who contemplate how faith meshes with contemporary life, the role of ritual and symbolism, and the metamorphosis of traditional symbols as they become immersed in popular culture. Using materials and principles of design that place them firmly in the world of contemporary art, this show incorporates both traditional media and modern technologies.
This exhibition is multicultural and addresses many faiths, as seen through the filter of artists who pose questions, make comparisons, find commonalities, challenge customs and encourage discussion. Some viewers may find parts of these works irreverent, but the presence of religious iconography in contemporary art indicates that questions of faith are still relevant. Throughout history, artists and their images have played an integral part in shaping religion and religious leaders have found power in pictures, often commissioning artists to create works to validate or nullify beliefs. Beyond the Age of Reason acknowledges these historical underpinnings of faith-based iconography as the exhibition’s individual artists put this iconography through its full range of plastic possibilities.
