Luxe gallery is proud to present Black Mirror/Espejo Negro, a solo exhibition featuring the works of artist Pedro Lasch. Black Mirror/Espejo Negro is the culmination of three ambitious projects produced over the past year.

The first project consists of a new site-specific installation created by Lasch for Luxe Gallery’s storefront windows. Facing Stanton Street, black mirrors with almost invisible images will confront passersby on an everyday basis, even as the gallery is closed. Gallery viewers and pedestrians will see their faces reflected in ghostly figures and imaginary buildings gradually appearing from under the glass. Reflections of the interior and exterior architecture of the actual surroundings will also become part of these fleeting pictures. Post-colonial theory and aesthetics, ongoing immigration debates, and current ideas around latinidad will frame this public visual dialogue in the intensely cosmopolitan context of New York City and the specific tensions between Loisaida and the Lower East Side.
