Here’s a little video about the exhibit going on at the MF Gallery called: “IMMACULATE- REFLECTIONS OF MARY”
The Virgin Mary has played the longstanding role of a mother, daughter, wife, and saint. This iconographic female figure’s influence on artists has been expressed through songs, poetry, paintings and statues throughout history. Today she is represented in film, television, t-shirts, stickers, tattoos, and even visualized on toast, allotting her a most unusual occupancy in popular culture.
Immaculate: Reflections of Mary seeks to reveal artwork influenced by the Virgin Mary. This unique collection will show us how her image has transcended from a figure in religious institutions into modern culture.
Artists participating in this exhibition hail from a variety of mediums such as printmaking, tattooing, painting, sculpture, animation, and traditional drawing methods.
