|SAMUEL BAK AND THE ART OF REMEMBRANCE|
January 18 – March 5, 2022
Reception: January 27, 5-7pm
|The exhibition brings together more than 30 paintings and works on paper dating from the late 1980s to the present by the renowned artist and Holocaust survivor that address ideas of history, memory, and trauma.
Samuel Bak survived the Holocaust as a young boy and after the war, emigrated with his mother to the newly established state of Israel where he took up the formal study of art. Over a long and prolific artistic career, Bak has sought to make sense of the past, cultivating a pictorial language that retrieves historical memory to preserve Jewish life and culture in the wake of unfathomable atrocity.
The exhibition is presented in cooperation with Pucker Gallery, Boston and supported in part by Barbara & Jim Schaye, Mercedes Sherrod Evans & David L. Evans, and the Robert I. Lappin Charitable Foundation.
