Thresholds of Faith: Four Entries into the Beyond

Thresholds of Faith: Four Entries into the Beyond, 2013  

Taraneh Hemami, Lynn Marie Kirby, Cara Levine, and Ali Naschke-Messing

Thresholds of Faith: Four Entries into the Beyond provided the space for four visual artists of differing faith backgrounds (Buddhist, Christian, Jewish, and Muslim) to investigate the meaning of their spiritual practices and religious backgrounds through art making. The exhibition stretched traditional expectations of clear boundaries between faiths and uncovered significant underlying dynamics in the personal/communal journey that each artist explored.

In this exhibition example. Manresa Gallery uses contemporary art to highlight diverse expressions of faith. Each artist was provided a space to contemplate and expand spiritual practices through artistic expression and community exchange, creating unique vantage points from which broader platforms for interfaith dialogue could occur.
