Moving Pictures: The Bible and Beyond

Following the  call of Via Pulchritudinis, DSPT is committed to fostering mutually enriching conversations that use art as a common ground between faith and reason, Church and society, or history and contemporary culture.

In collaboration with Blackfriars Institute for Religion and the Arts, the Gallery presents art which explore themes related to religion and the arts, or sacred arts and culture. With a particular emphasis on Catholic art and culture, exhibitions provide students at DSPT and GTU with the opportunity to  engage art with their research topics, thesis and dissertation work. Lectures and exhibition catalogs provide the public with interesting historical features of the art and their relevance to concerns of contemporary society.
