Professor and author Ori Z. Soltes, as co-founding Director of the Holocaust Art Restitution Project, has spent 20 years focused on the issue of Nazi-plundered art. We are thrilled to have Ori join our team with a series of three lectures.
Identity, Art, and Migration: Refugee Artists in America During the Nazi Period.
This presentation will focus on three artists—Anni Albers, Rudi Lesser, and Eva Hesse—who came to the United States during this period under very different circumstances and with diverse outcomes as artists. Their contexts are embedded in larger questions of artistic identity and how it could be affected by American policies regarding refugees before, during, and just after the Nazi era.
