The Bridge

Exposition on ‘The Bridge’, Friday 19 May 2017, 13:00 – 14:00, Hostry Exhibition Space: In the third of a series of events to accompany ‘The Cross’ Exhibition, running from 20 April – 29 May 2017, Anthony Hodgson will take the viewer on a journey exploring the themes of his painting ‘The Bridge’ by using spoken word, poetry and song.

Interpretations of the Cross in Contemporary Art & Culture, 20 May 2017, 14:30 – 15:30, Weston Room: Wendy McTernan gives a talk to accompany ‘The Cross’ Exhibition, which is running until Monday 29 May 2017. In today’s secular society, it is perhaps surprising that artists still find themselves drawn to the Christian cross as a means of expression. The cross has never been an event about which one can remain neutral; from the start it was an offence. Contemporary artists’ interpretations have taken many forms. We will look at some examples and see how, in unexpected and sometimes shocking ways, Jesus’ story becomes part of theirs – and ours.
