Sarah Lucas: Au Naturel

Hammer Museum

09 Jun 201901 Sep 2019

First survey of Sarah Lucas, one of the UK’s most influential artists in USA. Bringing together more than 130 works in photography, collage, sculpture, and installation, Sarah Lucas: Au Naturel reveals the breadth and ingenuity of the artist’s practice.

Alongside new sculptural works created for the exhibition, the exhibition at Hammer Museum features some of Lucas’s most important projects, including early sculptures from the 1990s that substitute domestic furniture for human body parts and enlarged spreads from tabloid newspapers from the same period that reflect objectified representations of the female body, in addition to the photographic self-portraits that Lucas has produced throughout her career. These works, which complicate inscribed codes of sexual and social normativity, have never been shown together in the United States.
