Event description

Description

Four contemporary artists—Linda Robinson Gordon, Ellen Holtzblatt, Lilach Schrag, and Michelle Stone—explore the relationship between the physical and spiritual.

Join the artists as they discuss the processes that go into the creation of their work.

On view in Spertus Institute's Ground Level Arts Lab.

Inspired by the natural world, they delve into the relationships between matter and energy and between the roles of process and materials in the act of creation. They explore their fascination with human experience, community, memory, time, and narrative.

Evoking the concept of Lech Lecha, a Hebrew phrase from the third parashah (Torah portion) that translates as “go forth,” the artists were compelled to experiment and take risks, stretching the boundaries of their artistic practices toward a place of personal authenticity.

Works include drawings, paintings, sculptures, videos, and installations.

This event is free.
Reservations appreciated.

Exhibition curated by Sarah Krepp.

Exhibitions at Spertus Institute are supported in part by the Harry and Sadie Lasky Foundation and Charles & M.R. Shapiro Foundation.
