Olivia Johnston: Saints and Madonnas

September 15, 2019 - December 8, 2019

In this new series of photographic portraits, Olivia Johnston invited peers to pose as Christian saints and Madonnas, as well as other Biblical figures. As an artist with a secular upbringing, Johnston has been investigating the influence of Christianity within the visual language of Western art and wider culture. Exploring the collection as CUAG’s fifth artist in the Collection Invitational series, the Ottawa-based artist has selected artworks that depict or reference Madonnas, as well as works that contain symbols or narratives associated with saints that will be brought into conversation with her own works.
