In this latest collection of artist and Holocaust Survivor, Samuel Bak explores the book of Genesis and Adam and Eve.  This exhibition of more than 60 works asks questions about good and evil and tikkun olam (repair of the world). 

 

Born in 1933 in Vilna, Poland, Samuel Bak had his first exhibition at age nine in the Vilna Ghetto.  He and his mother survived the war, while his father and four grandparents were murdered by the Nazis.  After liberation, he and his mother lived in Landsberg Displaced Persons Camp.  From there, they immigrated to Israel where he studied at the Bezalel Art School.  In 1956, he went to Paris where he was enrolled at the Ecole des Beaux Arts.  His work has been exhibited throughout Europe and the United States.  It is also included in several prominent public collections such as the Bezalel Museum, Jerusalem; the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, Nuremberg, Germany; Spertus Museum, Chicago, Illinois; and the Tweed Museum of Art, Duluth, Minnesota.
