Come and be inspired by this series of 3 talks on spirituality and art, held over Lent. Join art curator Mary Kisler (1st talk Wed 5 March) , artist Tony Lane (2nd talk 12 March) and art critic Terry McNamara (3rd talk 19 March) as they delve into a range of topics relating to this big theme.

All three talks will be convened by Alexa Johnston, who was a curator at Auckland Art Gallery from 1978 to 1997. She has written on Christianity in New Zealand art and particularly on the work of Colin McCahon.

2nd talk - Painter Tony Lane will give a talk entitled, Is Art Inherently Religious? He states, “Based on my own paintings and my experience of looking at paintings and sculpture, my talk will explore the links between art and religion and what makes ‘religious art’.
In my perception, some works of art are imbued with an aesthetic that comes very close to a religious experience without containing any obvious religious or theological references and conversely, many paintings illustrating religious events seem quite profane.”
