Saints: Confessors and Martyrs
What is it about the drama of the stories of the saints that lend them such lasting appeal?
On this course you will hear course tutor Richard Stemp put paintings of the saints into the context of the show, Michael Landy: Saints Alive.
The course includes talks in the exhibition and the picture galleries as well as contributions from other gallery experts including Jennifer Sliwka (Howard and Roberta Ahmanson Fellow in Art and Religion), the show's curator Colin Wiggins and Associate Artist Michael Landy.
