PAJ brings together performance and the visual arts in extensive
coverage of new media, dance, theatre, music, video, film, installations, and
photography. Artists and critics explore contemporary art practice and ideas in creative new directions.

For over a quarter century PAJ has been celebrated for its critical
daring and cutting-edge exploration of performance and new media.

“A cursory overview of avant-garde and modernist movements, beginning in
the late-nineteenth century, reveals the extent to which much of the
most advanced performing, literary, and visual arts drew on religious
iconography, biblical themes, lives of saints, the occult, and deep
spiritual feelings, joining Western, Asian, and Middle Eastern religious
traditions. Alongside the impact, in the last half-century, of Buddhism
and Judaism, and, more recently, Catholicism on American performance and
visual arts there has been growing attention to the spiritual styles of
artworks … In future issues of PAJ we plan to feature a series of
essays, dialogues, and texts, on the subject of art, spirituality, and
religion, in which artists and critics can explore spiritual themes and
artworks shaped by religious imagery.”

Excerpted from “Art as Spiritual Practice,” the introductory feature in
a new PAJ series on Art, Spirituality, and Religion
