TheoArtistry is about a meeting of the ways: between theology and the arts, between theory and practice, and – in the latest TheoArtistry scheme – between text and image.

The TheoArtistry: Text & Image scheme for 2021 brings together visual artists and researchers from several disciplines in a multifaceted research project. The participating scholars and artists worked collaboratively within interdisciplinary groups to research and discuss ideas for the formation of new text-inclusive artworks.

‘Revelation' is the focus of the 2021 TheoArtistry collaborations. The dialogue between art and theology taking place within and around TheoArtistry has often touched on the notion of revelation: what can be known, conveyed, revealed, experienced, discovered, or obscured through creative works? And how can creative encounters through the making and experiencing of art connect with, complement, challenge, or shape aspects of scholarly theological discourse?

‘Art as revelation' is the culmination of this journey: a collaborative exhibition investigating the cognitive implications of text-inclusive artworks and a celebration of the art generated from the work that the participating scholars and artists have done together over the past six months.

The free exhibition, curated by Dr Nicole Ruta, Dr Rebekah Dyer and Anna McNay, will be held in St Andrews, Scotland, in 2021, across two venues:

  • Upstairs @ J&G Innes Gallery from Tuesday 30 November to Wednesday 8 December 2021, from 11am to 4pm, Monday to Friday
  • Saint Andrew's Episcopal Church from Friday 10 to Sunday 19 December 2021, from 11am to 4pm, Monday to Friday, and on Sunday during worship services.
