ATHICA: Athens Institute for Contemporary Art is pleased to announce its spring exhibition, Adventures in Mysticism, which brings together the work of twenty national and regional artists who explore transcendence, religion, and the preternatural: concepts and experiences that by their very nature seem un-representable. The selected artists and 3 artist-teams employ a variety of media and modes to express the disparate notions embodied by the concept of mysticism. Work ranges from Dennis Harper’s representational, labor-intensive egg tempera paintings to Amanda Wiles and Rachel Dove’s sequenced, one-night outdoor light performance that will take place the night of the opening.
