Shirazeh Houshiary and writer Enuma Okoro in conversation about spirituality in art
9 April 2021
Join the Moody Center for the Arts on 15 April for an Artists-in-Dialogue event that brings together two inspiring creative minds for a discussion around the spiritual meaning of art.
Painting and installation works by Shirazeh Houshairy are currently on view as part of the Moody's exhibtion 'Artists and the Rothko Chapel: 50 Years of Inspiration'. Avoiding categorization, her works recall diverse artistic traditions, from traditional Islamic art with its use of pattern, repetition and calligraphy, to Western modern art.
Enuma Okoro is a Nigerian-American writer, speaker and cultural curator, based in New York City, whose work focuses on the power of stories and narrative, culture and identity, the visual and literary arts, contemplative spirituality and soul care, and women’s interiority.
The event will take place on 15 April at 12pm CDT. It is organized in partnership with the Religion and Public Life Program (RPLP) at Rice University, and the conversation will be moderated by Frauke V. Josenhans, Associate Curator at the Moody.
