From the internationally renowned artist Luba Lukova, Designing Justice  presents vivid, captivating works that tackle the complexities of our time and make the issues that impact our lives and our communities more approachable. Lukova's thought-provoking imagery is a powerful vehicle providing visibility to a range of topics, including war and peace, censorship, corruption, the environment, and more.

Luba Lukova: Designing Justice debuted at Museum of Design Atlanta, becoming one of the museum’s most visited shows to date. Loved by audiences and critics, the exhibition embarked on a tour to galleries and museums across the U.S. and internationally. In the past few years, Designing Justice has energized the communities at National Underground Railroad Freedom Center
, a Smithsonian Affiliate in Cincinnati, Ohio; Jewish Museum Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Billie Holiday Theatre, Brooklyn, New York; Zarrow Art Center, Tulsa, Oklahoma; Rogers Center for the Arts, North Andover, Massachusetts; Phebe Conley Art Gallery, Fresno, California; Krannert Fine Arts Center, Anderson, Indiana; Museum of the City of Riobamba, Ecuador; The Thermos Foundation, Taipei, Taiwan; Slup Szymon Gallery, Szczecin, Poland; Lore Degenstein Gallery, Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania; Kaohsiung American School Media Center, Taiwan; Manninen Center for the Arts, Beverly, Massachusetts; and Rivier Art Gallery, Nashua, New Hampshire.

Why are the images in Luba Lukova’s Designing Justice are so visually appealing? Saturated colors draw you in; hard edges clarify the dynamic shapes; and distilled compositions keep the eye locked into the picture plane. And, within her direct, elegantly streamlined images, Lukova has embedded the most essential element of all — a powerful message that gets people thinking.

While it is easy to focus solely on the messages of her provocative works, it is important to take a step back to appreciate the artistic merit in Lukova’s simplicity. Her use of striking, metaphoric images gives the viewers art intended to produce an intellectual stimulus and an emotional impact that emerge from her overall mastery of the visual language.

Listen to Luba Lukova's interview on NPR.

"Lukova's work has the ability to open up a dialogue. Her images are such that they make us talk to one another..."
