Anne Frank Center, USA new exhibition of
Michael Knigin’s Survival of the Spirit Series
Opening Reception to meet the artist, Sunday, December 9th from 4 – 7 PM
New York, New York (PRWEB) November 5, 2007- A new exhibition based on two series of works on paper and canvas created by the artist, Michael Knigin, will be on display December 9th 2007 – January 11th 2008 at the Anne Frank Center, USA, 38 Crosby Street, 5th Floor (between Grand and Broome Sts.).
Seeking to isolate objects from their mundane contexts by reorganizing them and granting them a new life, Michael Knigin is exhibiting a selection of prints on paper and canvas, paying tribute to the victims of the Holocaust at The Anne Frank Center, USA. The primary focus of this selection will be Anne Frank, whose stirring words have been read by millions of people over the world, making her diary one of the widely published books in over 70 languages. Living in an age of brief, fast, and now – screen fed and keyboard long – these images were spawned by that culture. The collages communicate a compelling tribute to the ‘survival of the spirit’ and concentrate on Anne’s indomitable gift for profound thought. These works challenge the viewer to ask questions, and one comes away from the experience with greater appreciation of the complexities of war, and of the conflicting imagery and emotions of the Holocaust.
From her time hidden away in an annex in Amsterdam until her death of typhus at Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, Anne Frank has become a symbol to the world of hope’s resilience in the face of adversity. The works in this series remove Anne from the annex and have her floating above a war-torn Amsterdam or hovering like a ghost behind the day-to-day life of the post-war city. The story of Anne Frank has been told countless times, yet Mr. Knigin provides a fresh take on her life in this artistic interpretation.
Curators for this exhibit were the artist, Michael Knigin, Yvonne Simons, Executive Director of The Anne Frank Center, USA, and Ross L. Auerbach, Exhibitions Manager for The Anne Frank Center, USA.
The mission of The Anne Frank Center, USA, a non-profit founded in 1977, is to advance the legacy of Anne Frank by teaching the lessons of her time to young people and communities, and educates them on the consequences of intolerance and the need to identify and challenge prejudice. Through exhibitions, educational and public programs, the Center utilizes the diary and the spirit of Anne Frank to inspire and empower the next generation to build a world based on mutual respect.
The Anne Frank Center USA is located at 38 Crosby Street, 5th Floor (between Grand and Broome Sts.), New York 10013. Exhibits hours at the AFC are from 10 am to 5 pm, Monday – Thursday, and 9 – 4 on Fridays through December. Admission is free though donations are appreciated. Appointments are suggested.
