Opening: 13/04/2023, 18-20.

In the exhibition Viriditas - The mystical in art, we present artists who work with the mystical, magical and spiritual as both theme and method. "Viriditas" is a Latin word meaning vitality, the green and freshness of nature, youthfulness and fertility. Hildegard Von Bingen (1098-1179) used the word to describe spiritual and physical health, in relation to the spiritual in nature. Expressing and having alternative spiritual freedom is political, feminist and socially critical. Recently, the spiritual in art has gained new ground in contemporary art, which we will highlight in the exhibition.
