Pacts and Invocation

Pacts and Invocations: Magic and Ritual in Contemporary Art is a group exhibition featuring the work of ten contemporary artists. This exhibition features a range of media, including ceramics, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and performance art, all of which incorporate themes involving magic and ritual. As noted by the curator, Erik Waterkotte, “the power of symbols and objects is a fascinating archetype of human culture and expression, and this influence remains vehement today in the works of contemporary artists [who] practice a range of traditional and non-traditional media.”
