Todros Geller: Strange Worlds
  • Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership proudly presents Todros Geller: Strange Worlds, an exhibition showcasing the multifaceted oeuvre of Todros Geller, an influential Chicago artist who was central to the history of modern American Jewish art. This retrospective will be mounted in Spertus’ Ground Level Arts Lab starting September 6, 2018, continuing through February 17, 2019.
    Todros Geller: Strange Worlds is part of Art Design Chicago, a celebration of the vital role Chicago plays as America’s crossroads of art and design, creativity, and commerce. Art Design Chicago is an initiative of the Terra Foundation for American Art with presenting partner The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation.
    Todros Geller: Strange Worlds draws primarily from Spertus Institute’s collection—which includes extensive holdings of Geller’s paintings, prints, and works on paper as well as preparatory sketches, letters, books, postcards, articles, photographs, posters, and illustrations—to present the broad scope of Geller’s creative endeavors. More than 30 works in a range of mediums will be on view, the majority for the first time, along with a selection of unique archival materials to allow viewers to explore the public and private concerns that animated Geller’s work.
