Weekly Roundup - 11/21/22

This week: From the Summer 2022 issue, Anna Lukashevsky interviews Ukrainian refugees in Israel about their experiences, while also painting them. Zoé Samudzi reviews the Philip Guston retrospective exhibit, which she accuses of sanitizing the artist’s work depicting Klansmen in the wake of the George Floyd uprisings. Alisa Solomon reviews Tom Stoppard’s play Leopoldstadt.

Plus, from the newsletter, Alex Kane reports on AIPAC’s largely successful midterm spending blitz.

Alisa Solomon
