The Museum of Cycladic Art in Athens, Greece will host an exhibition from 12 May to 12 September with works by the British artist Sarah Lucas. It will be showing new work from the "Nuds" series, an important development in Lucas' work, a self-reflecting series that moves away from the gender-based critique of her work in the ‘90s and takes the earlier figurative "bunny" sculpture series to a more abstract form. There are interesting links to British sculpture in the 20th century, such as Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore, as well as influences by Louise Bourgeois, Bellmer and others.
