Inquiry 01: Chicago Jewish Artists Fellowship Exhibition Opening

  • Spertus Institute 610 S Michigan Ave Chicago, IL 60605 (map)

Inquiry 01 presents the works by nine accomplished artists, participants in Spertus Institute’s first Chicago Jewish Artists Fellowship. Throughout the last year, the artists conducted individual and collective research into their Jewish identity and artistic practice.

The 2017–2018 Chicago-based artists Nelly Agassi, Leslie Baum, Iris Bernblum, Dianna Frid, Matthew Girson, Jesse Malmed, Geof Oppenheimer, Roni Packer, and Rana Siegel.

On view will be new projects by the Fellows, along with objects from the Spertus collection selected as part of their work.

Join us for the opening reception, when artist Nelly Agassi, in conjunction with her exhibition project, will be doing a "give away performance," giving souvenir-like objects to the audience to create a subtle sense of collective identity.

This event is free. Reservations appreciated.
