In conjunction with the exhibition Todros Geller: Strange Worlds, the exhibition’s curators Ionit Behar and Susan Weininger (Professor Emerita of Art History, Roosevelt University) wrote a set of essays now available online. In them, Behar grapples with Geller’s multi-layered idenity as simultaneously progressive, “Yiddishist,” and American. Weininger delves into Geller’s subject matter, including Jewish life, urban landscapes, magical realism, and more.
