IHP presents a new installation by Alex Lukas and Megawords, incorporating drawing, monotype on concrete sculpture, printed and found objects.

Alex Lukas was born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1981 and raised in nearby Cambridge. With a wide range of artistic influences, Lukas creates highly detailed drawings, concrete sculptures and intricate publications. His work has been exhibited in New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London, Lima, Stockholm and Copenhagen as well as in the pages of Megawords, Swindle Quarterly, Proximity Magazine, Dwell Magazine, Juxtapoz, SFAQ and Art New England, among others. Lukas’ imprint, Cantab Publishing, has released over 40 small books and ‘zines since its inception in 2001. He has lectured at The Rhode Island School of Design, The Maryland Institute College of Art, University of the Arts in Philadelphia and The University of Kansas. Lukas has been awarded residencies at The Bemis Center for the Arts, the Ucross Foundation, AS220 and The Jentel Foundation. He is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and recently moved to Chicago after many years in Philadelphia.

Megawords is an experimental media project that takes the form of an independently published photography magazine and related installation projects and public events. Through their work they create an ongoing narrative that examines daily life in cities through the documentation of our surroundings and experience, with a voice free from commercialization and competing novelties.

Please join us for an opening reception on Friday, July 17 from 5:30-7pm to celebrate this new exhibition. The exhibit will be on view through the end of September 2015 in IHP’s East Alcove on the Main Level.
