A Yale University Press publication, this book offers “an in-depth and current investigation of how the spiritual is manifestly present in contempoary art.” Authoured by Leesa K. Fanning (curator of contemporary art at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, Missouri), Encountering the Spiritual includes contributions from Ladan Akbarnia, Stephen Gilchrist, Eleanor Heartney, Mary Jane Jacob, Karen Kramer, and Karen E. Milbourne.

Encountering the Spiritual┬áprovides an alternative to the main currents of presentation and interpretation prevalent in contemporary art, appealing to believers, agnostics, and inveterate skeptics alike. This essential publication demonstrates that the need to address the fundamental questions of life are┬áboth innate and ongoing.”
