CST Conference Art Exhibit

Moving Margins: Opción for the Poor and Vulnerable Art Exhibit

The 2019 Catholic Social Tradition Conference features a juried exhibit of works of art by University of Notre Dame undergraduates responding to the following prompt: Moving Margins: Opción for the Poor and Vulnerable. The artwork explores race, gender, religion, sexuality, ability, the environment, immigration, incarceration and other contemporary realities in which human dignity is threatened or enhanced. Whether capturing a current injustice or portraying a new vision of solidarity, this art reflects the preferential option for the poor and vulnerable, which, according to Fr. Gustavo Gutiérrez, O.P., implies “leaving the road one is on, as the parable of the Good Samaritan teaches, and entering the world of the other, of the ‘insignificant’ person, of the excluded from the dominant social sectors, communities, viewpoints, and ideas.” 

The exhibit is juried by South Bend artists, Laurie Rousseau and Ramiro Rodriguez, and presented by the Center for Social Concerns, Department of Art, Art History and Design, and Office of the Provost.
