No Compromises!
The Art of Boris Lurie

Exhibition Catalog

A catalog was created to accompany the exhibition. It includes images of the exhibited works as well as six essays.

Additionally, the catalog contains a selection of Lurie’s poems, such as this one from 30 September, 2000:

The deaf Goya
screams into my ear
– whispers:
It is forbidden to paint beautifully
It is musty and fusty to treasure;
the slow inspiration
of pleasure.
You should enjoy;
black crows
not roses.
Back to verse one.
