"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
How does contemporary art address the idea of spirituality? How do artists working today reveal and question commonly held assumptions about faith, belief, meditation, and religious symbols? The "Art in the Twenty-First Century" documentary “Spirituality” explores these questions through the work of the artists Beryl Korot, Ann Hamilton, John Feodorov, Shahzia Sikander, and James Turrell.
