Summary:
"A wide ranging survey show of the work of the Russian-born Jewish artist Boris Lurie. Survivor of the Holocaust and founder of the NO!art group, Boris Lurie refused to abide by the dictates of art movements that were part of a social system he believed to be corrup. He declared that he learned from the truth, his only mster, and did not wish to partake in the proposals of a social model he considered suprious and to which he responded with a categorical NO. His philosophy and attitude were predicated on his devastating experience in Nazi extermination camps and the realization that there will always be a world of oppressors and oppressed. In the words of the philosopher Francisco Jarautai, "Nobodey has expressed the tension between memory and image as radically as Laurie." The intention of this exhibition, made possible thanks to the collaboration between the Boris Lurie Art Foundation and the National Museum of Fine Arts of Havana, is to disseminate the artist's creative agenda and to stimulate reflection in all those who decide to engage with the vast "Lurie Universe.""--Publisher's website.
