Emily Lombardo's work weaves cultural and historical references to bring focus to marginalized narratives. Her practice often uses classical methods of printmaking to create timeless works of social critique.
Lombardo’s solo museum show, The Caprichos: Lombardo and Goya, at the Academy Art Museum in Maryland, featured 80 etchings by both artists. This display engaged the audience to ponder the congruences of past and present, resulting in an intimate recognition of the historical patterns of human behavior.
