Lecture: Luba Lukova – Designing Justice

Wednesday, January 24, 2018 - 6:00pm
Stuckeman Jury Space

On Wednesday, January 24, 2018, at 6:00 p.m., internationally renowned, New York-based artist and designer Luba Lukova will open the Stuckeman School's 2018 lecture slate with a talk titled, "Designing Justice." The lecture – which is co-sponsored by the McCourtney Institute for Democracy – is free and open to the public.

Internationally recognized, New York-based Luba Lukova is regarded as one of the most original image-makers working today. Whether by using an economy of line, color, and text to pinpoint essential themes of humanity or to succinctly visualize social commentary, her work is undeniably powerful and thought provoking.

In Lukova’s art, less is more. More effect, more meaning, more expression; all while doing it with less. Her striking, metaphoric images give the viewers art to not only appreciate visually but intellectually.

Lukova’s solo exhibitions include UNESCO, Paris; DDD Gallery, Osaka, Japan; La MaMa Gallery, New York; the Art Institute of Boston; and the Museum of Design Atlanta. She has received commissions from Time, Sony Music, Canon, and Harvard University. Her work is in the permanent collections of MoMA, New York; Denver Art Museum; Bibliothèque nationale de France, Paris; Hong Kong Heritage Museum; the Library of Congress and the World Bank, Washington, DC. Her awards include Grand Prix Savignac, International Poster Salon, Paris; Gold Pencil, The One Club, New York; Honor Laureate, International Poster Exhibition, Fort Collins, CO; and honorary doctoral degree, Art Institute of Boston. Lukova is the author of the critically acclaimed Social Justice poster portfolio, which has been exhibited around the globe and has gone viral on the Internet.
