New York City NY— Louis K. Meisel Gallery is pleased to announce Role Playing—an artistic collaboration between New York-based artist Tara Lewis and Brooke Shields. On display throughout May 2022 Role Playing explores Shields’ vibrant contributions to Pop culture in the 1980s through the playful portraiture of Tara Lewis.

The resulting body of artwork which consists of paintings drawings and digital works depict Shields and her two daughters posing in a series of looks styled to capture the dynamism of that era. Creative synergy between Lewis and Shields drove the portrait concepts and compositions which were seasoned with an array of props and wearables from Shields’ personal collection including her original Calvin Klein jeans. References to Keith Haring and Studio 54 along with generic props that include visors bubblegum and legwarmers create mise-en-scènes that explore a particular coming of age moment in youth culture.
