Join us for an insightful conversation about the legacy of the Holocaust in American public life, with particular attention to the role played by survivors. This event is offered in conjunction with “Inventing Downtown: Artist-Run Galleries in New York City, 1952-1965,” on view at NYU’s Grey Art Gallery, January 10-April 1, 2017. The exhibition includes works by Boris Lurie, a survivor of Buchenwald who emigrated to New York and founded the March Group of artists, who employed art as a tool for making polemical statements about the Holocaust and other hot-button political issues.
