    Crossings: Art and Christianity Now

    Crossings: Art and Christianity Now
    Friday 9 February to Thursday 10 May 2018

    From February to May this year, Southwell Minster will be host to an inspiring major art exhibition which will encourage visitors to explore two key Christian themes through art: crucifixion and resurrection. Crossings: Art and Christianity Now is a two-part exhibition which will fill the Minster with 100 new works of art by 36 significant artists, twice! The first half of the exhibition, Crucifixion Now, will be on show during Lent from Friday 9 February to Wednesday 21 March; the second part, Resurrection Now, will be on display in Eastertide, from Sunday 1 April (Easter Sunday) to Thursday 10 May (Ascension Day). There will also be education work tied in with the exhibition with school visits and a full programme of supporting events for all to enjoy. Crossings is unique to Southwell and will not be seen anywhere else.

    The artists will each present two new works made especially for Crossings -- one for each half of the exhibition -- and part of the artists’ brief was to explore the two themes in a new way, refreshing visually our engagement with suffering in our world today (crucifixion) and the hope of new life in the world today (resurrection).
