Event Details

         The board of CGU's Religion in Conversation Conference is currently inviting paper

proposals dealing with "Creating Expressions of the Sacred: the Intersection of Art and

Religion." The conference will broadly discuss the relationship between theology and

artistic expression.

         In every civilization, belief system, and era, humanity has struggled with attempts to

artistically portray religious figures and themes. From prehistoric cave paintings to

the age of postmodernism, peoples across the globe have experimented with physical,

creative manifestations of divine, often ethereal, subjects. In the modern world religious

art still inspires some with its beauty while infuriating others who interpret the genre as

blasphemous.

        This year's theme is intentionally broad to include ideas from diverse faiths and

mediums. Topics may include, but are in no way limited to, artistic expressions of

religious ideas (including painting, sculpture, drama, engravings, poetry, film, etc.),

religion as art, art as religion, art in religion, iconoclasm, taboos in religious art, religious

artists, curatorial decisions regarding religiously themed art, and religious authority's

embrace or denouncement of artistic expression.
