Art in Churches

A collaboration between Art and Christianity and the Church of England’s Churchcare division, Art in Churches is commissioning cutting-edge contemporary installations.  Its first project, Ritournelle, by Katia Kameli involved the recorded voices of refugees and opened in St John the Baptist, Newcastle, in October.  

“Art in Churches takes curatorial excellence out of the gallery and makes it possible for brilliant and powerful works to be shown in beautiful, spiritual spaces.

"Allchurches Trust is delighted to fund this new manifestation of the centuries-old relationship between church and art and hopes audiences enjoy the extraordinary added dimension that a church setting brings to contemporary art." Sir Philip Mawer, Chairman Allchurches Trust
