ITIA Art Exhibition 2017 Announcement

The Institute for Theology, Imagination and the Arts is pleased to announce its summer 2017 art exhibition, “The World ‘behind’ and ‘in front of’ the Work.”

The title combines ideas drawn from the writings of Richard Viladesau (who suggests that attitudes and ways of seeing enter into an artist’s work and “contain clues as to the ultimate concerns of the artist and/or his age”) and Paul Ricoeur (who argues that works of art can explore and open up new ways of being in the world).

ITIA students, faculty, and friends are invited to submit visual art, writing or music inspired by this theme. Both emerging and accomplished artists are encouraged to participate.

The works will be exhibited in the gallery of J & G Innes Stationers, 107 South Street in St Andrews, from 11-24 June, 2017.

We look forward to celebrating the creativity of the ITIA family and sharing the imagination which infuses the research, study, and teaching of ITIA.
