Mary Doesn’t Just Wear Blue

Fri Jul 12 - Thu Aug 29

Mary Doesn’t Just Wear Blue

The Virgin Mary is one of the greatest icons of Western culture and art history. For centuries her image has been used to promote models of femininity. Today, her image has gone beyond religion, and Mary can be found in necklaces, t-shirts, comic books, and even underpants.

For this exhibition, 11 Western artists re-imagine Mary as a cultural icon beyond religion. The exhibition invites the audience to explore how Mary can take shape as a non-religious icon, and how her image adapts to current times. What kind of woman do the artists show? How does Mary’s image adapt to current ideas of femininity and womanhood?
