The exhibition Boris Lurie: Nothing To Do But To Try presented a portrait of an artist reckoning with devastating trauma, haunting memories, and an elusive, lifelong quest for freedom. Here is one of his works that was on view in the exhibition:
“The most horrible concentration camp ceremony is the roll call. Every morning and every evening just one corporal counts the camp of tens of thousands of prisoners in a roll call. The ceremony lasts hours and hours. Should the count be short by one, the counting recommences. Tardiness to roll call can be fatal.” – Boris Lurie
