Shylo Arts

Elevate Closing Reception
Established as a Jewish Synagogue in 1925, the historic Shiloh Tabernacle was transformed into a Church of God in 1984. Having been abandoned for some years, the space now fosters the potential for recreation- a point of intrigue that Manal Shoukair, a Muslim Arab-American woman could not overlook. As the fourth iteration in a series of interactive site-specific installations, Shoukair has transformed the space into one of spiritual inquisition and curiosity. Elevate is one in a series of installations that ask viewers to journey consciously through the space they occupy.

Friday June 8th,  6-9pm.
