Sarah Lucas. Oh! Soldier. 2005

Sarah Lucas Oh! Soldier 2005

  • Not on view

Lucas is part of a generation known as Young British Artists (YBAs) that came to attention in the 1990s for their often sensational subject matter. Many of Lucas's works contain frank sexual content and crudely juxtapose everyday materials. They also often blur masculinity and femininity. The artist has said, "I like to play around with gender stereotypes. And I like androgyny."

How we identified these works

In 2018–19, MoMA collaborated with Google Arts & Culture Lab on a project using machine learning to identify artworks in installation photos. That project has concluded, and works are now being identified by MoMA staff.
