Sarah Lucas Works at Top Speed

“It’s a very ready material – the tights and the wire and the fluff. I like to work at top speed. All the methods I’m using – most of them – are kind-of ready, and you just get on with it.” —Sarah Lucas

One of the most anticipated shows this fall is the first major retrospective at an American museum of legendary YBA Sarah Lucas – Sarah Lucas: Au Naturel, opening September 26, 2018 at the New Museum. In 2017, Lucas participated in a unique exhibition at the Legion of Honor at the Fine Arts Museums of San FranciscoSarah Lucas: Good Muse was an installation of works by Lucas in response to the exhibition Auguste Rodin: The Centenary Installation. Here, Lucas walks us through the exhibition, and talks about the work and her inspiration.
