More that 2,000 visitors attended the opening of Luba Lukova: Designing Justice, a remarkable new exhibition by a J. Donald Feagin Visiting Artist at Zarrow Art Center in downtown Tulsa, OK.
An artist and designer, Luba Lukova creates images that transcend language, cultures, and politics. Her thought-provoking posters address essential themes of humanity and injustice worldwide. Her messages help viewers develop empathetic understanding for social and cultural issues through indelible metaphors and an economy of line, color, and text.
The exhibition is sponsored by the University of Tulsa, School of Art, Design and Art History; Departments of Sociology and Media Studies; and Oklahoma Center for the Humanities.
"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
"Intense and unrelenting, pointing out the injustices and foibles of society in a cheerful advertising aesthetic that surprises the viewer with its poignancy."
–William Corwin, Saatchi Magazine
"Luba Lukova’s images have punch, and they are laced with such feeling that they often merit a second look."
–Cate McQuaid, The Boston Globe
