|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until March 5, 2022

SAMUEL BAK AND THE ART OF REMEMBRANCE
 

January 18 – March 5, 2022

Montserrat Gallery

 

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.
