Sarah LucasSarah Lucas, the Young British Artist who famously set up a shop on Bethnal Green Road with Tracey Emin, is the subject of a major solo exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery in the autumn of 2013. A participant in the landmark YBA exhibitions, Freeze in 1988, and Sensation in 1997, Lucas is widely regarded as one of Britain's leading sculptors, using inanimate objects to create her artworks. In this display iconic works including Unknown Soldier (2003), Two Fried Eggs and a Kebab (1992), Au Naturel (1994), and the more recent Bunny series are presented alongside new works including a tailor-made commission created especially for the Whitechapel Gallery.

About Whitechapel Gallery

Designed in a distinctive Arts and Crafts architecture style by Charles Harrison Townsend, the Whitechapel, Britain's first purpose-built arts gallery, is renowned both for the beauty of its light, airy space and for embracing the local community in its work. Founded in 1901, extensive refurbishment saw the gallery, reopened in April 2009, double in size. More about Whitechapel Gallery
