exhibition: sarah lucas: happy gas

Sarah Lucas is internationally celebrated for her bold and provocative use of materials and imagery. Using ordinary objects in unexpected ways, she has consistently challenged our understanding of sex, class and gender.

HAPPY GAS at Tate Britain presents her practice in all its diversity across sculpture, installation and photography, narrated in her voice, and looking well beyond the 1990s Young British Art world. The exhibition brings together more than 75 works spanning four decades, from breakthrough early sculptures and photographs to brand new works being shown for the first time. Devised in close dialogue with the artist and presented in her own voice, this survey takes a fresh look at Lucas’s practice to date.

Breaking boundaries with humour and daring, Lucas shows us the whole spectrum of what it means to be human.
