When museums and religion collide

Under Gods exhibition at Glasgow’s St Mungo Museum

Liz Hingley’s photographic exhibition ‘Under Gods: Stories from the Soho Road’ will be on display at St Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art until 28th July 2013.

The exhibition documents the everyday religious lives of the residents of one street – Soho Road in Birmingham. Soho Road is home to an incredibly diverse community, which include Sri Lankan and Vietnamese Buddhists, Rastafarians, the Jesus Army evangelical Christians, Sikhs, Catholic nuns and Hare Krishnas. The exhibition is a poignant exploration of religious identity and inter-faith living.
