This study day discussed the work of Michael Landy and his exhibition Michael Landy: Saints Alive, which ran between 23 May and 24 November 2013. A series of large-scale kinetic sculptures brought a contemporary twist to the lives of the saints. Saints are more often associated with traditional sacred art than with contemporary work, but Michael Landy, Rootstein Hopkins Associate Artist in residence at the National Gallery, was inspired to revisit the subject for his exhibition.
