Trina McKillen will discuss the development of her artwork in the exhibition "Confess." She will be joined by Dr. Cecilia González-Andrieu, Associate Professor of Theological Studies, Loyola Marymount University, and Karen Rapp, director of the Laband Art Gallery. Reception to follow.
The Laband Art Gallery proudly presents a multi-part installation by Los Angeles-based artist Trina McKillen. Like many people around the globe, McKillen has grappled for years with the worldwide crisis of sexual abuse committed by Catholic priests and its aftermath. Over the last decade, McKillen has channeled her feelings of outrage and grief into the creation of artwork that gives voice and visibility to survivors of abuse, namely children. Recognizing the devastation this abuse has wreaked on individuals and families, the aim of McKillen's solo exhibition is to bring attention to abuse survivors and to initiate dialogues about their healing.
Confess will be on view Jan 19 - Mar 23, 2019. Free admission.
