A hybrid world of religion and fairy tales surrounds several of Kiki Smith’s characters. Christian icons such as the Virgin Mary and Mary Magdalene serve to reinterpret biblical stories and are woven into the artist’s creation myth. Join Johan van Parys, director of worship and sacred arts at the Basilica of Saint Mary, for a discussion of the Christian iconography in Smith’s work and her reinterpretation of religious narratives.
