Opening next Tuesday at the Museum of Fine Arts is Ori Gersht: History Repeating on view from August 28th through January 6th. This exhibit is unique in that the MFA granted Gersht access to their archives to compliment his own work. His respect for art history comes through in the content of his imagery and he has worked with curators to chose a number of historical pieces to be shown alongside his own work which spans his entire career. This will include several new photographs and a film titled Liquid Assets. This film was created for the Museum of Fine Arts and was inspired by a Greek Coin from the MFA collection.
