"Faith Healer" consists of several small participatory installations illustrating the interplay of personal faith, therapy, and memory. The artist explores the contrasting yet compatible roles of traditional religion, cultural practice, and psychology in dealing with trauma and loss.
The George Washington University's Dimock Gallery provides a space on the GW campus for exhibitions curated by students of the department of fine arts and art history. These exhibitions include graduate M.F.A. shows, undergraduate, and graduate student shows. A "rolling" schedule of exhibitions more experimental in nature is organized by Department of Fine Arts and Art History graduate and undergraduate students.
