From Here to There Artist Talk: Stories That Move Us

January 9 @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

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

See their work on view in Spertus Institute’s Ground Level Arts Lab and join the artists as they discuss how their life experiences, memories, and ideas inform their work.

Inspired by the natural world, Gordon, Holtzblatt, Schrag, and Stone 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.

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.
