WRESTLING THE ANGEL: ARTISTS IN DISCUSSION

Come hear the artists from Wrestling the Angel!

Split over two evenings, the Bechtler will host panel discussions with 12 of the living artists featured in the current exhibition, Wrestling the Angel. They will discuss their work and how they relate to the two dominant themes in the exhibition: spiritual practice as artistic practice and religious iconography used for social critique. Join us for one evening or both!
