CANCELED - Art, Race, and Religion: Artist Talk with Mark Doox

Monday, May 4th 2020, 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Badè Museum, Pacific School of Religion, 1798 Scenic Avenue Berkeley, CA 94709

This event has been canceled.

Mark Doox is a writer and narrative-based visual artist whose mixed-media acrylic collage paintings use aspects of Byzantine and early Italo-religious icons as the basis of his icon-styled artwork that he calls “Byz-Dada” (Byzantine Dadaism). He is a deacon and official iconographer of the San Francisco-based Coltrane Church and iconographer of The Dancing Saints Icon mural at San Francisco’s St. Gregory Episcopal Church. His St. Sambo icon work is in the African American collection at the Princeton University Art Museum, and his art is in exhibitions across the USA and abroad. 

At this event, Doox will give a slide presentation and discussion of his innovative icon work, read passages from his graphic literature novel-in-progress, The Book of St. Sambo, and host a Q&A session.
