Juxtaposed with a range of works by Old Masters and examples from architecture, literature, and anthropology, the works in Negotiating Rapture show how artists, as creators, move beyond common experience to a state approaching religious ecstasy and how we, as viewers, can in turn discover a deeper involvement in our own humanity. Major essays by Homi K. Bhabha, Georges Didi-Huberman, David Morgan and Lee Siegel, as well as a series of focused contributions by.

Marty, John Hallmark Neff, Annemarie Schimmel, and Helen Tworkov consider how rapture resonate's both in a cultural context and within the experience of a single human being. A "Travel Guide to Negotiating Rapture," written by Richard Francis and Sophia Shaw, explores how each artist in the exhibition has sought to define rapture and, by guiding the viewer/reader, initiates scrutiny of transformative.
