Implicit Religion, Vol 11, No 2 (2008)

Review Article: Can contemporary art be religious? (Review of On the Strange Place of Religion in Contemporary Art by James Elkins)

Michael Austin
Issued Date: 29 Aug 2008


This is a good short book on a huge and diverse subject. Its merit is that its author (who is a professor of art history in two universities, one on each side of the Atlantic) tackles, head on, an issue which many of his contemporaries ignore—the presence of religious themes, perceptions and intentions in an aesthetic environment the opinion-formers of which reject all expressions of religion in fine art, be they explicit or implicit.
