An exhibition across London in 14 iconic destinations.
A pilgrimage for art lovers.
Experience the Passion. Lent 2016.
10 February (Ash Wednesday) – 28 March (Easter Monday)
New Stations for a ‘New Jerusalem’
On the day he died, Jesus walked the Via Dolorosa through the streets of Jerusalem; a journey commemorated by the Stations of the Cross. Across the chasm of two thousand years, this tortured path resonates with current events, especially the hazardous journeys of refugees.
This unique exhibition held in 14 stations across London uses works of art to tell the story of the Passion in a new way, for people of diverse beliefs and backgrounds. In a pilgrimage for art lovers of all faiths and none, viewers will travel across London, mapping the sacred geography of the Holy Land onto the streets of a ‘New Jerusalem’.
The Stations will weave through cathedrals and churches of various denominations, as well as secular spaces including museums and public squares. Art will range from Old Master paintings to contemporary installations. Artists will include Christians, Jews, Muslims, and atheists. Instead of easy answers, the Stations will provoke the passions: artistically, spiritually, and politically.
