You Can Heal Your Life!
At Circus Gallery
Curated by Emma Gray
January 7 — February 6, 2010
Circus Gallery is pleased to announce You Can Heal Your Life a group show curated by Emma Gray, featuring works by Sister Corita, John Espinosa, Gustavo Godoy, Dawn Kasper, Jason Meadows, Aleksandra Mir, Jen Liu, Josh Podoll, Jeni Spota, Jose Alvarez and Thomas Lanigan Schmidt.
The art works in this show seek to address issues of religion, spirituality and self-help through performance, sculpture, painting, video and printmaking. The title has been lifted from Louse L. Hay’s best selling and controversial self-help book You Can Heal Your Life, which was first published in the late 1980’s – an era awash in New Age ideas. Adherents of the New Age movement believe that a spiritual era is dawning in which individuals and society will be transformed. Some of the artists in this show are connecting with or questioning new age beliefs and others are directly engaging with religious iconography and dogma.
