The Legion of Honor will present two new works by Lucas (b. 1962), as well as a selection of recent sculptures in dialogue with the museum's acclaimed collection of works by Auguste Rodin (1840?1917) on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of his death. In "Good Muse," Lucas will present sculptures in her signature range of materials -- pantyhose, cigarettes, furniture, concrete, and plaster -- charged with sexual and psychological power and a disruptive ambivalence.
British artist Sarah Lucas has been invited to create a series of interventions within and around the concurrent exhibition, “August Rodin: The Centenary Installation.” Lucas is widely known for sculptures and installations that complicate notions of gender, sexuality and power, while Rodin is celebrated for works that center masculinity and the male gaze—thus, expect provocation.
