If you think that art is too often used for marketing purposes, then perhaps you’d appreciate the NO!Art movement of the late-1950s and 1960s, which was co-founded by Jewish American artist and Riga native Boris Lurie (1924-2008). He despised the commercialization of art and required political relevance in his work. Although he lived in poverty for much of his life, his penchant for buying penny stocks allowed him to amass a multimillion-dollar fortune, which was posthumously used to create the Boris Lurie Foundation. The foundation was founded and is still run by Gertrude Stein, a long-time supporter of his radical and controversial art. View 67 works by Boris Lurie and other renowned NO!Art artists such as Allan Kaprow (1927–2006), Yayoi Kusama (1929), Jean-Jacques Lebel (1936), Michelle Stuart (1938), Erro (1932) and Wolf Vostell (1932–1998).
