The Pilgrim's Progress (12/9 16- 1/20 17)
For Able Baker's December-January show, The Pilgrim's Progress, we will present artwork made by people for whom a sincere approach to religion and/or spirituality is integrated into both life and creative practice. Devotion and spiritual belief take forms as diverse as the people who hold these beliefs, but the number of contemporary visual artists who prioritize spiritual life is relatively small. The artists represented in The Pilgrim's Progress all follow their convictions with an honesty that shapes and expands the boundaries of their art-making practices. The resulting artwork is meditative, narrative, contemplative, and strange.
