MASS MoCA presents the US premiere of the Rachel Howard's Paintings of Violence (Why I am not a mere Christian); a single installation comprised of ten paintings and one sculpture, presented in relationship to the sculptural assembly, Lighting with Stag in its Glare, by Joseph Beuys. In her work, Howard examines religion, mortality, and violence, specifically the more subtle kinds of ‘controlled violence’ that are meticulously planned and calmly executed.

Rachel Howard, Paintings of Violence (Why I am not a mere Christian) is at MASS MoCA, Massachusetts until 2 February 2019.
