Luba Lukova is no exception to the Gallery’s resolve to present work that progresses the dialogue of social and cultural issues through contemporary art. As an image-maker, Lukova is one of our truly unique voices. Using an obvious mastery of design principles, she creates a disarmingly simple aesthetic to tackle very complex social and political issues. Lukova’s use of metaphors and symbols help her works to remain simultaneously current and timeless.\
Internationally recognized, New York based Luba Lukova has held solo exhibitions at UNESCO in Paris, DDD Gallery in Osaka, La MaMa Gallery in New York, and the Art Institute of Boston. Her work is represented in the permanent collections of New York’s Museum of Modern Art, the Library of Congress, Bibliotheque Nationale de France, and the World Bank. She is the author of the critically acclaimed Social Justice poster portfolio containing visual reactions to many of the pressing issues of our time. Lukova’s new book, Graphic Guts (Clay & Gold), featuring her social commentary art will be published later this year.
