Pacts and Invocations: Magic and Ritual in Contemporary Art

Pacts and Invocations: Magic and Ritual in Contemporary Art is a group exhibition featuring the work of nine contemporary artists, on view at the Spartanburg Art Museum from June 23 – August 28, 2016.  This exhibition features a range of media, including ceramics, painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture, all of which incorporate themes involving magic and ritual. As noted by the curator, Erik Waterkotte, “the power of symbols and objects is a fascinating archetype of human culture and expression, and this influence remains vehement today in the works of contemporary artists [who] practice a range of traditional and non-traditional media.” A special reception celebrating the exhibition will be held on June 24, 2016 from 6-8pm.
