“Beauty makes a pact with the Devil” —Vanity Fair
Ori Gersht is a conduit between the past and the present. With the latest digital technology, Gersht’s work poetically revisits sources ranging from 19th-century romantic landscape painting to the Holocaust, which imbue his work with a compelling tension between beauty and violence, memory and history. In twenty-five works, including large-scale photographs and films dating from the late 1990s to today, Gersht examines the evolving relationship between cultural, political, and art histories to shape an exhibition The New York Times describes as “beauty, tender and fleeting, amid history’s ire.”
Join the New Center, the Israeli Consulate, and the Prism Art Circle for a private talk and tour of the FIRST exhibit by an Israeli artist to grace the walls of the MFA. Talk by Al Miner, MFA Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art.
