2008: On the Strange Place of Religion in Contemporary Art

In response to James Elkins' book On the Strange Place of Religion in Contemporary Art (2004), artists and scholars gathered for this year's symposium to rethink the relationship between religion, spirituality and contemporary art. Artists contemplated the question: "Can committed, ambitious and informed art mix with serious, thoughtful, heartful religion without wrecking the other?" Special guest speakers included James Elkins, Karen L. Kleinfelder, Daniel A. Siedell, Rachel Hostetter Smith, Roger Feldman, and Christina Valentine.
