NYFA is thrilled to announce Back to Life: Resurrection Reimagined, a partnering exhibition between NYFA and St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church held in the sanctuary of the historic Saint Ann & the Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Brooklyn Heights.
With both site-specific and already realized works by ten contemporary artists,
Back to Life: Resurrection Reimagined
features multiple thematic interpretations relating to the concept of resurrection and renewed life set within the context of the 168 year-old church. In 14 panels spanning balconies along the main sanctuary’s north and south sides, the artists express their particular ideas about resurrection. While most commonly associated with Christian theologies about Jesus Christ,
remains a central theme within many religions, mythologies and, belief systems.
