Divine Theory
May 20, 2022 – September 30, 2022
Austin Arts Center – Widener Gallery
The gallery is window-view only during the summer

In Divine Theory, Jerome Sicard’s large, stoic sculptures are flanked by the quiet wall works of Brea Campbell-Stewart and bathed in the cassette-recorded sounds of original compositions by artist and musician Miguel Mathias. Together, these visual and auditory components create and aura of sanctity — borrowing the aesthetic power and calculated opacity of the religious only to deploy them at the contemporary intersections of craft, commerce, and appropriation.

Divine Theory was curated by the Trinity Studio Arts Program’s 2021-2022 post-baccalaureate fellow Harrison Kinnane Smith.
