Bard Graduate Center Gallery is proud to announce its participation in Open House New York Weekend. OHNY Weekend visitors are invited to view the exhibition Agents of Faith: Votive Objects in Time and Place, on view at Bard Graduate Center through January 6, 2019. Faith is common to all human societies. By focusing on the material artifacts produced with the intention of being offered as acts of faith, Agents of Faith will provide a perspective on why humans across the globe create these material objects. Encompassing exquisite works of art as well as those of humble origin crafted from modest material, more than 300 objects dating from 2000 BC to the twenty-first century will be on display. Powerful works from sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas, representing the majority of world religions, will expose the global nature of votive practices and the profoundly personal nature behind their creation.

Exhibition curator Ittai Weinryb will lead an in-depth tour on October 13 at 12 pm that will give audiences a behind the scenes look at this expansive exhibition.
