La MaMa La Galleria is pleased to announce Luba Lukova’s exhibition, Graphic Guts. Internationally renowned Lukova is regarded as one of the most distinctive image makers working today. Poignant and unrelenting, her arresting images grab the viewer and don’t let go. She will present a new collection of social commentary and theater inspired art. Lukova’s work is included in the permanent collections of MoMA, New York; The Library of Congress, Bibliotheque Nationale de France, Paris; and the World Bank.
Stunning. Instead of statistics, instead of discussions, Lukova’s in-our-face, one-on-one work of art asks us to feel, really feel…
– Carol Knowles, Memphis Flyer
Creating some of the most iconic posters of the last decade, Luba Lukova is one of the most important visual artists of our generation. This is not up for debate. History will remember her work.
–John Foster, Rockpaperink
Luba Lukova’s posters have punch, and they are laced with such feeling that they often merit a second look.
