Taking its title from a 1920s opera composed by Virgil Thomson and libretto by Gertrude Stein, this group exhibition brings together contemporary artists such as Andrea Büttner, Jeni Spota C., Devin Mays, Dan Ramirez, Kehinde Wiley, Nate Young, and Rodrigo Lara Zendejas who appropriate the iconography of saints and other religious forms in order to critically explore their relationship to this imagery.
