Article about Boris in Jewish Currents
The article is titled "BORIS LURIE AND NO!ART."
“In a time of wars and extermination, aesthetic exercises and decorative patters are not enough.”–Boris Lurie
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."
BORIS LURIE NO!
Extended: 25 JUN - 23 NOV 2016
Janco Dada Museum, Ein Hod, Israel
This exhibition, held on the centennial of the Dada movement, centers on six series chosen from Lurie’s wide-ranging body of works, in an attempt to underscore both the explicit and the implicit connections of his oeuvre to the Dada movement and to Marcel Janco.
