Research project

A Faith of Their Own: Women Artists Re-vision Religion

A comparative investigation of the complex and vital role played by religious symbols, images, and rituals in the artistic oeuvres of several influential Twentieth-Century women artists from diverse ethnic, religious and cultural backgrounds. In analyzing their hybrid religious revisions, alternative cosmologies and personalized rituals we discover that even as they created art, these artists forged a faith of their own.
