The RedBall Project

On September 3, the new Spertus building was a site for artist Kurt Perschke's RedBall Project, an ongoing, mobile sculptural performance that has taken place in such locations as Busan, Barcelona, and Sydney.

Imaginary Coordinates

Imaginary Coordinates was inspired by antique maps of the Holy Land in Spertus’ collection. The exhibition juxtaposed these maps with modern and contemporary maps of this region, all of which assert boundaries.

The New Authentics: Artists of the Post-Jewish Generation

“The New Authentics” are 21st-century American Jews. Free to choose their affiliations, they are Jewish culturally, religiously, spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, partially, biologically, or invisibly.

The Language Barrier

While the new Spertus building was being built, a showcase was created on the 50-foot-long Michigan Avenue barricade of the construction site for the site-specific work of leading contemporary artists who consider compelling questions about culture, identity, and religion.
