A timely and thought-provoking survey of the relationship between art and religion in contemporary culture, illustrated by some of the most compelling and provocative works from across the globe.

Blaspheming artists get all the press. But contemporary artists are, in fact, some of the most profound and sensitive commentators on religion today. Art & Religion in the 21st Century is essential reading for anyone interested in contemporary art and culture.

Contrary to the expectations of 20th-century rationalists, religion has not faded away in the 21st century, but roared back onto the scene with renewed vitality. This survey shows how religious themes and images continue to permeate the work of contemporary artists from across the globe. Some exploit the shock potential of religious imagery, but many also reflect deeply on spiritual matters.

The book encompasses a wide range of media and genres, from sculpture to street art, and considers faith in its broadest sense – from Islam and Christianity to Aboriginal mythology and meditation.
