Catholicism, the Body, and the Art of Paul Thek: A Conversation @ Carnegie Museum

I am still trying to wrap my head around the Carnegie's Paul Thek show. His work is much more beautiful and visceral than I expected and left me asking all kinds of questions.

Tonight at 6:30 there will be a free panel talk about the show.

Start:March 31, 2011 6:30 pm
End:March 31, 2011 8:00 pm

"The human body, both in representation and symbol, is ever-present in Paul Thek’s art, which could be simultaneously intensely spiritual and insistently profane, lyrical and base. Join Dr. Paula Kane of the Department of Religious Studies, University of Pittsburgh, and Dr. Katharina Winnekes of Kolumba, Art Museum of the Archdiocese of Cologne, Germany, in examining paradoxes embedded in Thek’s spirituality and artistic practice."

FYI, this talk is literally free since there is no charge for admission after 3:30 PM on Thursdays during the month of March, thanks to a grant by The Buncher Family Foundation.
