Stendhal Syndrome : art as a transcendent experience
Faith in Arts chapbook series, volume 2. Stendhal syndrome, named for the 19th-century French author physically overwhelmed by the sublime beauty of Florence’s artworks, serves as an idiosyncratic foundation from which to explore art’s power to offer profound, even psychosomatic spiritual experiences. Featuring artist-designed chapels across the world, an essay on Caspar David Friedrich by author Chloe Aridjis, and a conversation with art historian James Elkins.
Asheville, NC : Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center and Los Angeles, CA : Atelier Éditions, 2021.
