The XMAS Project
- Additional Information -

The XMAS project has been in development for over a year by the Department for Public Appearances, Munich in association with Kent Gallery.  The goal of the project was to challenge artists invited by the Department to offer a commentary driven by emotional as well as rational observations generated by the holiday season.  XMAS represents the re-definition and secularization of a religious tradition and celebration, replacing its religious overtones with a hybridized holiday freed from issues of faith or culture.
