On Art, Religion, and the Poetics of Resistance

Investigation of how the contemporary visual arts in the United States (1960-present) have incorporated the Southwestern landscape as a space for religious, social, political, and cultural negotiations. I am particularly interested in the oeuvre of artists associated with Landart movement in the American Southwest. I examine how their oeuvre responds to issues of secularization by recalibrating and revitalizing a dialogue between secular contemporary art, aesthetics, and theology in the United States. My broader interests involve religion and artistic production; religious material culture of the Southwest as a frontera/borderland—a site for negotiation of identities; theologies of sacred spaces; tragedy and transcendence as explored artistically; the relationship between sacred mobility, the environment, and the visual arts.
