Josh Faught: Sanctuary


Saint Mark's Cathedral Capitol Hill
Jan 31, 2017–July 31, 2018


Recommended by Emily Pothast

Bay Area artist Josh Faught—winner of the 2009 Betty Bowen Award—uses textiles and collage to negotiate the shared histories of people and places. Sanctuary, a 45-foot textile installed on a pillar in Saint Mark's Cathedral, weaves memorabilia from Seattle's underground gay history together with lyrics from Belinda Carlisle's Heaven on Earth. The result is a contemplative work that queers the boundaries between the physical and the spiritual, the carnal and the ecstatic, the adherent and the outsider (Faught himself is Jewish). Add it to Saint Mark's Compline Choir every Sunday night as another reason for art lovers to investigate this Capitol Hill house of worship.
