Matter + Spirit

Monday, January 23 - May, 12 2023

Opening Reception: Wednesday, January 25, 4-7PM

co-sponsored by University Core, College of Communication and the Arts, and Asian Studies

What is the place of spirit in contemporary life, particularly in highly materialistic and increasingly  secular societies like   those of the United States  and China?  This is the central theme of Matter +  Spirit which brings together a cohort of   artists from  China and the United States working  to address the role of spirituality in contemporary society. In bringing these artists and artworks into proximity, curator Rachel Smith orchestrates an overview of what is at stake in a post-Christian, post-modern, post-human - and most recently what has been dubbed a trans-human age - where technological systems have overtaken the direction of how we live. This fundamental shift has indelibly influenced and altered the shape of human existence and society. Matter + Spirit is a catalyst for conversation and reflection on what it means to be human right here, right now.
