We are looking to make contact with artists making work or with specific existing works which engage with ideas surrounding systems of belief in contemporary culture. In particular we are interested in artworks that intersect with, or function as, religious objects, including: votives, veils, shrouds, hymns, prayers, fetishes, icons, etc. We are looking for artworks which reference things which promise transcendence and transcend their materiality.

We are especially interested in works from BAME, queer and disabled artists, and works which make connections with non-Western and marginalised religious practices. 

We are in the process of putting together a proposal for a group exhibition that will be shown in the UK and are interested in having wide-ranging conversations with artists whose work addresses the areas outlined above with a view to working with them on this and future projects. 

Submissions should include: 

  • a link to your website

  • one photo of relevant work 

  • a brief explanation of why you would be interested in talking to us
