New Exhibit
At Spertus

N



Relationships between two com-
munities are expressed and de-
fined through the perspectives of
12 local artists, six African Amer-
icans and six Jews, in a contem-
porary art exhibit, "Bridges and
Boundaries: Chicago Crossings,"
through August 7 at Spertus Mu-
seum of the Spertus Institute of
Jewish Studies, 618 S. Michigan
Ave., Chicago.
Providing a forum to stimulate
new inter-cultural conversations
with a minimum of constrictions,
Spertus Museum invited artists
to create a response to issues
raised in the traveling exhibition
"Bridges and Boundaries:
African Americans and Ameri-
can Jews," currently on view at
the Chicago Historical Society.
In "Bridges and Boundaries:
Chicago Crossings," the artists
interpret personal impressions of
cultural conflict and cooperation
with another community. The
various perspectives are pre-
sented in a visual display or
paintings, woodcuts, clay sculp-
ture, photography and large in-
stallation pieces.
What emerges from this ex-
ploration is a dynamic fusion of
emotions that reflects years of
shared cultural experiences as
well as power struggles. Left ex-
posed are the mixed feelings of
sacrifice, cooperation and trust
as well as those of resentment,
indifference, and alienation.
A short video introduces the
viewer to the exhibit, document-
ing the art-making process
through interviews with the
artists who explain personal mo-
tivations for their works within
a social context.
Spertus Museum hours are
Sunday-Thursday, 10 a.m.- 5
p.m.; Fridays, 10 a.m.- 3 p.m.;
closed Saturday. Friday is a free
admission day. Guided tours are
available Sunday, Tuesday,
Wednesday and Thursdays for
groups of 15-50.
