About LUKUNO Art Exchange Foundation:

LUKUNO brings internationally recognized artists originally from Suriname, South America, to the United States to exhibit their work, exchange ideas and processes with local artists, and to create new pieces inspired by their experience here in the U.S.  

"LUKUNO" is a common term in Sranang Tongo, the most widely spoken of 27 languages in Suriname's population of under 600,000. "Luku no," is best translated as "Hey look," as it similarly embraces a variety of statements, questions, even commands. As "Hey look," Luku no" can mean "Watch this," "Hey listen," "look then!" "So, here's what I mean," "Well, look then!" even "I told you so!" based on subtle inflections of delivery. We chose to call our exhibit LUKUNO to have you say HEYLOOK. 

Suriname is a country steeped in hues of thick green amazonian canopy, winding translucent brown waterways, birds and flowers competing with and complementing each other in vibrant call and response colors, stark white sand savanna and rust gravel roads.
