An Evening With Lawrence Langer: Considering Samuel Bak’S Hope says
Dr. Lawrence L. Langer returns to Houston to engage the Museum community in further conversation about his friend and colleague, survivor and artist Samuel Bak. During the event, Langer will lecture in the Albert and Ethel Herzstein Theater and lead a Mincberg Gallery exhibition walk-through the exhibit “H.O.P.E.: Paintings by Samuel Bak.” Samuel Bak has created an astoundingly complex, beautiful and richly colorful journey for viewers in his newest exhibit at Holocaust Museum Houston. The letters from the word H·O·P·E. appear in various phases, some partially hidden, others fragmented, some large, others small. The paintings in the H·O·P·E series do not attempt to illustrate the atrocities of the Holocaust, yet they show viewers the destruction, ruin and sadness left in its wake. “The call to create art – and indeed to respond creatively to its power – allows us to find hope even in shattering despair,” Bak has said. Admission is free, but seating is limited and advance registration is requested. Visit http://www.hmh.org/RegisterEvent.aspx to RSVP online.
