The Subject of Tonights Sermon is_

Christine Tarkowski

Culver Center of the Arts

January 27 - April 14, 2007

Opening Reception - Saturday, January 27, 2007, 7pm - 9pm

Christine Tarkowski continues her recent exploration into faith-based belief systems in preparation for creating her own unique religion. Serving as a rudimentary gospel "THE SUBJECT OF TONIGHTS' SERMON IS_," further develops and documents the evolution and conceptual underpinning of her emerging belief system. Drawing from a variety of signage vernaculars, the images and text plastering the Culver windows span early American printing-press graphics to contemporary movie marquees. The typographies eferenced include 17th-18th century slave trade posters, evangelical missionaries salvation propaganda, hand-painted grocery store advertisements, panhandlers' hand written signs, manifest destiny/westward expansion ads of the 19th century, wanted dead or alive flyers, and sign boards used by churches and schools for community announcements. A hymn/gospel/choral work made in collaboration with Jon Langford will accompany the project.
