We need Outlaw Art now more than ever before – The Villager

An article by Aan Kaufman, author of “The Outlaw Bible of American Art,” has just been published in the downtown publication The Villager.

"A true visionary, for a time, Lurie and his movement caught the attention of such art world notables as Tom Wolfe, Harold Rosenberg and Dore Ashton. But his star faded due, in no small part, to his shocking frankness about the savagery and root causes of the Holocaust. He left behind a wealth of great paintings and today interest in his iconoclastic work is again on the rise internationally."

No Compromises! The Art of Boris Lurie —major exhibition in Berlin

KEINE KOMPROMISSE! Die Kunst des Boris Lurie

26 FEB - 31 JUL 2016
Jewish Museum Berlin
Translations from the German press

The Jewish Museum Berlin is dedicating a major retrospective show to Boris Lurie and his radical artistic examination of the 20th century. Lurie is an artist who demanded political relevance from art and the art market. His much-discussed and controversial works accuse society of shirking coming to terms with its crimes against humanity by packing evidence of them between advertising and everyday banalities.
