& Art

Religion & Art is a CHASE funded research initiative by Nina Danino (Art Department, Goldsmiths); a series of public cultural and critical events that set out to create interdisciplinary encounters between religion and art from a generative position and to create a field of research and further enquiry in art practice.

In 2020 a symposium hosting presentations by artists, theorists and researchers was held at Goldmiths.


In 2021 the project expanded to a series of practice-based discussions in an online forum, co-chaired with Mark Dean (Arts Chaplaincy Projects)


For 2022 Nina Danino and Mark Dean presented a series of interdisciplinary talks by keynote speakers José Carlos Diaz, Adrian Rifkin, Tina Beattie, and Jarel Robinson-Brown, followed by the opportunity for extended discussion.


Religion & Art Live is a new series of events for 2023 focused on performative and time-based works in person and streaming online. A launch event will take place from 6.30-9pm on 21 March at Lumen, 88 Tavistock Place, Bloomsbury, London WC1H 9RS.
