In February 2012, Situation, a new gallery at 4 New Burlington Place, will open. Devoted to the work of Sarah Lucas, Situation will present new installations in February, May, August and November 2012, alongside an organic programme of events directed by the artist. The extended displays will include works both new and historical, mainly by Sarah Lucas and occasionally involving other artists.
Situation channels the spirit of the artist-led exhibitions of the late 1980s and 1990s with which Lucas and her contemporaries launched their careers. Sarah Lucas has long made new work in specific, sometimes remote and unusual locations, places which have engaged her interest and sparked a development in her sculpture. Situation will bring some of this work home, and then mix it up with older, rarely-seen sculpture or work by artists with whom she has a strong affinity.
