With the exhibition LIFE WITH THE DEAD, to coincide with the 60th Venice Biennale, we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the birth of BORIS LURIE, and we wish to present his powerful art to a wide audience. The monumental complex of the Scuola Grande San Giovanni Evangelista in Venice, with the “Badoer Exhibition Space” next to the Church of San Giovanni, is a perfect place for this show. The space was used as a grave, and the word “Coemeterium” (burial place) is written above the door. It is the place for eternity and for the resurrection.
