Related to Religion
A general category for artworks that feature religious subject matter or are in some respect connected to religion, but are not immediately understood as works of religious art (i.e. those made for a church or sacred space). Examples come from a wide range of movements and include subject matter from Christian, Islamic, Buddhist, Hindu, and other faiths; these works are often understood as openly criticizing religious subject matter. Recent examples include controversial works like Andres Serrano's Piss Christ and Chris Ofili's The Holy Virgin Mary (which included elephant dung).
