An art movement founded in 1963 by Boris Lurie at Gallery Gertrude Stein after Lurie had left the March Gallery. The movement expressed the artist's disdain of current art trends such as Abstract Expressionism (shallow and decorative) and Pop Art (promoted consumerism). Art for NO!Art artists was intended to address serious social issues such as racism, sexism, imperialism, etc. Lurie, a Holocaust survivor, was committed to these topics from his imprisonment during World War II at Buchenwald, and the name came about when the Gallery Gertrude Stein opened on 81st Street, and Lurie and other painters such as Sam Goodman and Stanley Fisher were thinking "never again" of the post-Holocaust period.
