Join us for the free opening reception for 'Sarah Lucas: Good Muse' before the exhibition opens to the public on Saturday, July 15th.
In conjunction with 'Auguste Rodin: The Centenary Installation', the Legion of Honor has invited British artist Sarah Lucas to bring a contemporary perspective to our understanding and appreciation of Rodin.
Purposefully confrontational in its allusions to sexual acts, both verbal and physical, her work highlights Rodin’s erotic side, albeit confronting his idealizing male gaze with work that takes a demonstrative stance against female objectification and for the empowerment of woman.
Lucas’s friend and keyboardist Andrew Hale of legendary UK-band, Sade, will provide tunes courtesy of the Legion's famed organ, and refreshments will be provided at a cash bar.
Registration for this event is free. Please visit the Eventbrite page link above to RSVP.
