A talk by art critic Terry McNamara at St Lukes Community Centre in Remuera, Auckland on 19 March 2014.
Art critic Terry McNamara ’s talk, The Great War and its Effect on the Spiritual in Art, will begin with defining the nature of the spiritual in non-religious art. This will be followed by a consideration of the art and poetry evoked by the First World War and its subsequent effect on spiritual life in Europe and New Zealand.
Terry states, “This year marks the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War One, The Great War. With this in mind I thought it very fitting to give a talk about the spiritual in art around WWI. The war involved many artists directly and this cataclysmic event profoundly changed the expression of spiritual values throughout art and society.”
