Coinciding Liminal Worlds, Trestle is pleased to host the panel discussion “Liminality in Art: Art as Ritual” with the curator and artists in the exhibition on Tuesday, May 8th, at 7pm.

In a ritual setting, liminality is a state of ambiguity and/or disorientation that occurs in the middle stage of a ritual. It is the state between pre-ritual status, but before the post-ritual status is conferred. For many artists making artwork is a form of ritual, Hope, Insogna, Polashenski, and Thielker, perform various rituals in the making of the artworks in Liminal Worlds. Join us for an interesting and lively discussion on the creative practice, art as ritual, and the fine lines that are divisive, dangerous, and crossed with fluctuating ease and difficulty.
