Duets : Nicolas A. Moufarrege
Dean Daderko speaks with Elaine Reichek about the art, life and legacy of Nicolas Moufarrege.
Nicolas Moufarrege (1947–1985) was an artist, art critic and curator who died of AIDS related complications at the age of thirty-six. During his lifetime, he was best known for being a critical champion of the East Village art scene. He was born in Egypt and lived in Beirut and Paris before moving to New York City in 1981. New York Times art critic Roberta Smith noted that Moufarrege "molded a complex mixture of cultures into a distinct sensibility - his idiosyncratic embroidered works confirms that he deserves to be remembered for his art."
