Sarah Lucas - Whitechapel Gallery

Sarah Lucas: SITUATION Absolute Beach Man Rubble is at Whitechapel Gallery until 15 December 2013.
This retrospective shows Lucas to be the most impressive and polymorphously perverse survivor of the YBA (Young British Artists) generation. Much of her work is gloriously vulgar and funny; often, it is crude but simultaneously displaying a sophistication, wit and sureness of touch which marks her out as an exceptional artist. This combination is exemplified by Two Fried Eggs and a Kebab (below) which, for my money, is one of the great works of art of the C20.
Read reviews by Adrian Searle, Alastair Sooke, Jackie Wullschlager.
