Pilgrims and Pilgrimage: Sights and Sounds of the Sacred

Posted: 11th May, 2018

A one-day Conference and two-week exhibition involving artists, poets, musicians and theologians.

Curated by: Jim Harold, David Jasper and Donald Orr

Govan Old Church, Glasgow

 

Conference and Plenary session:  Saturday 19th May 2018. 10.00 am – 5.15 pm

Exhibition:  19th May – 3rd June 2018. Opening times:  1.00 – 5.00 pm daily 

 

The conference will comprise a rich mix of academic analysis, poetry readings, textual memories and narratives brought back by pilgrims, as well as performances of early and contemporary church music. These will be expanded upon through the contemporary art on show, using a range of media, including video, sound, printed texts and sculptural objects. 

The exhibits and conference are intended firstly, to act as catalysts for dialogue between the languages of pilgrimage in their many forms, whether theological, philosophical, poetic or pragmatically driven; and secondly, to complement the very important collection of early church relics and sculptures on show in Govan Old Church. 

Both the exhibition and conference are FREE, and open to members of the public at Govan Old Church – just a 2-minute walk from Govan Underground Station.
