 Sister Corita's Summer of Love 

Image1

Description

‘Sister Corita’s Summer of Love’ is a remarkable journey through the life and work of US artist Corita Kent (1918–86). Kent is better known as Sister Corita, as she was a Roman Catholic nun who, from 1936 to 1968, lived, studied and taught at the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Los Angeles, where she also headed the art department between 1964 and 1968.

Sister Corita’s work is colourful, always touching and more often than not, humorous. It borrowed magpie-like from signs and slogans, popular song lyrics, billboards, product packaging and magazine advertising, transporting messages of joy, faith, love, the power of God, and protest against the political crises of the times, including the civil rights movement, the wars in Indo-China and South-East Asia, and the assassinations of America’s political leaders.
