NOLI ME TANGERE
August 30 – December 10, 2021
Artist Talk & Panel: October 21, 2021 at 6pm
Noli Me Tangere, “touch me not” or “don’t tread on me,” (Latin) is a series of photographs that examines an internal conflict of homosexuality and Catholicism. The photographs address, but don’t aim to solve, the contentions between religion and homosexuality. Utilizing appropriated religious imagery and language, the work is recontextualized by the insertion of LGBTQ members and activists posing as Catholic deities. Themes, lighting, and color treatment are adopted from the works of Renaissance Artists. The photographs are then presented as polyptychs in mimicry of Catholic altar-pieces.
On Thursday, October 21, 2021 Point of Contact will host an artist talk starting at 6pm, followed by a panel discussion. Admission is free and open to the public. This event will be held in person and streamed virtually for those who cannot attend in person. Registration is required, link here.
