Sanctified is an exhibit to increase public knowledge of the contemporary famous gay black author and black and gay rights activist Assotto Saint and introduces visitors to new ways of thinking about Afro-Diasporic religion. Sanctified searches for guidance and healing through imagery and evocation of vodou. The exhibit blends the spectacular and transformative nature of vodou with the spiritual release found in the performative self.
