Join us for a peek into the oh-so-evocative world of YBA Sarah Lucas.
I invite you to join the team and I, tonight at 7PM EST for Considering Art : Considering Nudity as we continue to expand our FREE public programming. More info below.
About this event.
Sarah Lucas is an English artist and part of the generation of Young British Artists (YBA) who emerged during the 1990s. Her works frequently employ visual puns and bawdy humor by incorporating photography, collage, and found objects.
Tonight we explore some of Lucas’s most important projects, including early sculptures from the 1990s that substitute domestic furniture for human body parts.
In this LIVE 90 minute tour, we will consider the photographic self-portraits that Lucas has produced throughout her career, biomorphic sculptures - including her stuffed-stocking Bunnies (1997–ongoing) and NUDS (2009–ongoing), the Penetralia series (2008–ongoing), and selections from her installations at the Freud Museum in London (2000) and the British Pavilion at the Venice Biennale (2015). These works, which complicate inscribed sexual and social normativity codes, aim to evoke, shock and problematize.
Tickets are FREE and open to ALL. Please feel free to share.
Looking forward to interacting with you at 7PM EST.
All the very best,
Oh, Hi. 👋 We are Considering.Art™ - a new LIVE arts and cultural engagement platform that's as unique as you are. Join us! Unlike a typical museum / gallery tour, here at CA - it's not really about us, we are more interested in you.
Your way of seeing.
Never repeated and uniquely yours, our interactive and explorative video tours last typically 60-90 mins in duration, and are facilitated LIVE by your very own 'museum' guide. Cool right?
With a keen focus on contemporary art, together we aim to explore some of the most pressing issues of today - bringing thoughts, feelings, and observations into a lively and sometimes challenging exchange.
Developed in collaboration with a team of NYC art world professionals, in response to COVID 19 closures, we are super excited to welcome you into our global community as we join each other on this exciting journey.
Let’s do this... why not book a free tour today?
Once registered, your unique and direct link to our Zoom viewing / meeting room will be provided - keep an eye out for an email from us.
Closed Captioning will be provided.
This will be fun!
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Until then, stay creative and keep asking questions.
