What’s Mine is Yours: Illustrated Memories by Anna Lustberg @ 2 Rivington St
September 3 – 8, 2019 | 11am – 8pm
Opening Reception: Sept 4th, 6– 9pm
Arranged by Romina G. Khan
Parasol Projects is pleased to host the opening of What’s Mine is Yours: Illustrated Memories by Anna Lustberg, a poignant solo exhibition featuring a series of fine art prints in custom frames by the artist. Curated by Romina G. Khan, Lustberg’s works depict a sequence of vignettes of personal memories throughout the artist’s life.
Drawn entirely from memory, Lustberg’s works reveal a slightly skewed perspective that presents a meditation on the nature of human consciousness and the relativity of personal milestones. Bright colors and patterns provide the backdrop for whimsical figures that appear frozen in a moment in time; this, coupled with Lustberg’s subject matter, evokes an atmosphere of nostalgia for a time the audience was never a participant in. Yet, the inherent vulnerability of Lustberg’s prints imbues the series with a nearly universal congeniality of both the joys and hardships of childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood. In addition to her prints, the exhibition will also feature a living room display of personal possessions that Lustberg has carried with her throughout her life.
What’s Mine is Yours: Illustrated Memories by Anna Lustberg will be on view from September 3rd, through September 8th, with an opening reception on the evening of September 4th. The gallery is located at 2 Rivington Street, New York NY, 10002.
