Cruciformed: Images of the Cross Since 1980

Sun, Feb 9, 1992 through Thu, Mar 19, 1992

One of the dominant images in contemporary art since 1980 is the cross. This exhibition examines a variety of approaches, ranging from the representational to the abstract. Various questions are raised: how have these artists adapted an image once owned by the church to a contemporary context; to have extent has the cross become the property of popular culture and media; how is it used as an emblematic tool for presenting political commentary or effecting social changes.

Events and exhibitions are free and open to the public unless stated otherwise. Visitor information
