ABOUT THE ARTIST
Abraham Lubelski was born in Siberia in the USSR in 1940. In 1950 he immigrated
to the United States with his parents. He became a U. S. citizen in 1954.
Mr. Lubelski has been a professional artist for more than four decades
and over the years has worked back and forth between painting, conceptual
projects and installatons. In 1969 he completed a number of street works
and performances in conjunction with the Architecture League of New York
which were written up in Life and People magazines. In the 1970s,
among his other projects, he developed theater set designs. In the late
70s and early 80s Mr. Lubelski exhibited at the Neill Gallery
in SoHo. Since the 1980s Mr. Lubelski has exhibited internationally
on a regular basis. He has exhibited in Paris, Barcelona, Berlin, and
Hamburg, and, as well, in Poland, Japan, and various countries in South
America. In conjunction with these exhibitions a number of catalogues
have been produced and reviews have appeared in such international publications
as Flash Art. Since 1990 Mr. Lubelski has managed several exhibition spaces
on Broadway in SoHo in New York City. He has used the spaces to give exhibitions
to underrepresented artists (from the U. S. and abroad) and has, in addition,
sponsored the visits to the United States of numerous international artists.
For several years Mr. Lubelski has been supporting and developing a traveling
exhibition called Re: Duchamp which presents the work of 250 artists (the
list is still in progress) and has already been viewed in New York City,
Poland, Turkey, Italy (during the course of the Venice Biennale as part
of the Biennale sponsored event Markers) and Israel.
