New York… Beginning September 19, 2019, Luxembourg & Dayan will present Piotr Uklański: Ottomania, an exhibition of works from the artist’s new series of large-scale paintings inspired by the complex Orientalist heritage of Poland, his country of origin. Uklański’s lushly rendered re-interpretations of historical portraits find the Warsaw-born, New York-based artist expanding his longstanding engagement with questions of nationalist ideologies, representations of masculinity, and personal identity while redressing contemporary suppression of Eastern Europe’s deep and felicitous connections to the Middle East.
