Capacity is limited to 15 participants; please contact Xochi Solis by September 26 to reserve your spot.

Presented in conjunction with Liz Hingley’s exhibition Under Gods, the project Spiritual Object Studio invites the general public to participate by being photographed with an object that is felt to have personal spiritual meaning. Hingley’s work always centers around a community and explores links among different forms of belief and the material expression of religion in urban spaces.

For the Spiritual Object Studio, Hingley will photograph each participant with his or her object in a studio constructed within the VAC and then ask that a caption explaining the spiritual meaning of the object be added to the portrait. As the exhibition travels and the event reoccurs in other venues in the US, Japan, and Scotland, these texts and portraits will grow in number and scope. All contributions will eventually be made into a visual reference book of the scanned captions and portraits. 

Presented in conjunction with Hingley’s exhibition Under Gods on view at the Visual Arts Center September 21 – October 27.
