PUBLIC EVENT: 'Stations of the Cross' - a unique pilgrimage for art lovers

Follow Jesus’ journey to the cross through this dynamic art exhibition for people of all faiths and backgrounds, opening across London on Wednesday 10 February.

This Lent, CIP is working with Co-Curators Dr Aaron Rosen of King’s College London and artist Terry Duffy to present ‘Stations of the Cross’, a unique art exhibition spread across fourteen iconic London locations.

'Lamentation for the Forsaken' - Michael Takeo Magruder
Station Thirteen: Michael Takeo Magruder, 'Lamentation for the Forsaken' (detail) 2016

Weaving through religious as well as secular spaces, from cathedrals to museums, the exhibition uses works of art to tell the story of the Passion in a new way, for people of diverse faiths and backgrounds. Artwork by Christian, Jewish, Muslim, and non-religious artists are all incorporated, connecting the Passion with its modern day resonances –particularly the hazardous journeys of refugees from today’s Middle East.  

 

“The narrative of the Passion, embodied through these 14 impressive works of art, provides a powerful encouragement to think about not only the suffering of Jesus in this Lenten season, but the suffering of innocent people around the world.”  - His Eminence Cardinal Vincent Nichols.  

Use of an online interactive map, app, and podcasts for each installation will enable visitors to take the journey for themselves, experiencing each Station in their own time and in any order they choose. There are also a number of events taking place across London in connection with the exhibition. 

We are very excited to be a part of this unique project. We hope you will take a moment to experience it for yourselves and engage with the exhibition on Facebook and Twitter. Look out in particular for the exhibition's Twitter trail at 1pm on Wednesday 10 February!

When 

Wednesday 10 February (Ash Wednesday) – Monday 28 March (Easter Monday). 

Where 

Fourteen locations across London. See the exhibition’s website for more details.
