The World Chess Hall of Fame Revisits the Imagery of Chess with Local Artists

In 1944, the Julien Levy Gallery in New York hosted an exhibition challenging the traditional aesthetic notions of chess. In their latest installation, the World Chess Hall of Fame returns to this idea with “The Imagery of Chess: Saint Louis Artists.” The pieces range from new takes on the traditional characters to more abstract interpretations of the game itself. The show features 20 works of art, promoting a wide variety of local artists while paying homage to the 1944 exhibit.
