Alum Shimon Attie's 'Open-ended Meditation on History' on Display

Tuesday, May 09, 2017
THE JEWISH STANDARD (NEW JERSEY) -- “Sites Unseen: Igniting and Challenging Memory,” the 12th annual free public lecture supported by the Alfred and Rose Buchman Endowment for the Fine Arts, will be Attie’s first presentation in northern New Jersey. Since earning his Master of Fine Arts degree at San Francisco State University in 1991, Attie, who lives in Manhattan, has done about 30 major projects in 10 countries. He has exhibited at New York’s Museum of Modern Art and at more than 40 other museums and galleries worldwide. He has described his approach to works such as “The Writing on the Wall” as “a kind of peeling back of the wallpaper of today to reveal the histories buried underneath.”
