Her first American museum retrospective at the New Museum is the largest exhibition of her work yet. “Sarah Lucas: Au Naturel” features some of Lucas’s most important projects, including early sculptures from the 1990s.

Bruce Nauman: Disappearing Acts
This MoMa PS1’s retrospective carefully examines Nauman’s approach across media and throughout the decades,
in the most comprehensive exhibition of the artist’s work ever assembled.
Best known for his works with neon, American artist Bruce Nauman employed a tremendous range of materials and working methods throughout his career, revealing how mutable experiences of time, space, movement, and language provide an unstable foundation for understanding our place in the world. Defying categorization, Nauman’s art constantly shifts between mediums, senses, and modes of experience.
