About Peter Saul: Peter Saul (b. 1934) is an American painter. Often considered one of the fathers of Pop Art, he is known for his distinctively colorful and cartoonish paintings which satirize American culture. Since his first solo exhibition, in Chicago in 1961, Peter Saul has exhibited his work throughout the United States and internationally. His works are found in numerous museum collections worldwide, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Art Institute of Chicago; Carnegie Museum, Pittsburgh; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; Museum Ludwig, Cologne; and Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam. Peter Saul lives and works in New York.
Born in Paris, Lolita Cros is an independent curator living and working in New York City. She is known for creating projects and exhibitions that combine work by both established and emerging artists. With each project she proposes an alternative venue that asks the viewer to revisit their expectations and look at the work through a new and unique lens. Lolita has exhibited works in spaces ranging from a Chinese restaurant in the Financial District to a rooftop in Brooklyn, each time giving the artist a different platform to play with. In 2016 she started a series of Artist’s Talks in collaboration with Hotel Americano in which she invites and moderates conversations with renowned artists in front of a selected crowd of intellectuals, collectors and students.
