Church of Art
Human Resources
410 Cottage Home Street, Los Angeles, CA
Sunday, March 17, 2019, 2:00 – 8:00 pm

Using the framing of organized spiritual practice, Church of Art encompasses the work of artists who seek healing and self-actualization through various disciplines.  Following a visit to Foursquare Church in Echo Park, a mega church founded by celebrity-preacher Aimee Semple McPherson, Veronique d’Entremont and Kim Ye were inspired to write their own sermons examining the tension between the emotional impulses of an artist’s practice and the desire for success. McPherson came to Los Angeles in 1918 with a dream of becoming famous, and quickly became the nation’s “first modern celebrity preacher,” with audience numbers topping any other prior touring event or theater in American History.  Through their sermons, Veronique d’Entremont and Kim Ye use the language and philosophies of self-help literature, mindfulness practices, ethical non-monogamy, and 12-step recovery to transcend their ego-driven motivations, internal conflicts and external pressures as practicing artists.
