Trestle is pleased to host the panel discussion Liminality in Art: Art as Ritual with the curator and the four artists in our current exhibition Liminal Worlds. Liminality is a state of ambiguity and/or disorientation that occurs in the middle stage of a ritual. The artists in Liminal Worlds, search for insight and wisdom through ritual-like practices in their studio work. Hope quotes Byzantine techniques, while Insogna explores hydromancy and non-Western Goddess mythologies. Polashenski investigates her family’s history and domestic rituals, scratching the surface of memories. Thielker makes pilgrimages to geographic sites of inquiry and collects objects and material relics
