Here Comes Jesus: A Video Series by Joshua McGarvey

The Soap Factory Presents: Here Comes Jesus: A Video Series by Joshua McGarvey. The artist will be releasing the video series overtime on the Soap Factory’s blog leading up to the final video which will be screened in the Soap Factory’s lower level on April 15th at 7:30PM.

Jesus is a crinkled mirror. Jesus is Play-Doh. Jesus invented a table.
