The first major solo exhibition in the UK by American artist Lutz Bacher. This exhibition provides a unique opportunity to see Bacher?s new works made specifically for the ICA together with recent work. The artist?s expansive work explores human identity as it is defined through gender, sexuality and the human body. Lutz Bacher is as elusive as her work is ambiguous, perhaps preferring not to dictate how her works should be viewed. The exhibition at the ICA presents new and recent works which combine striking installations with film, sound and sculpture. At the core of the exhibition is Black Beauty (2012), several tons of coal slag which will flow throughout the lower gallery.

About Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA)

The Institute of Contemporary Arts boasts three galleries (with exhibitions changing approximately every six weeks), two cinemas, a theatre, restaurant, bookshop, late bar and cafe. The ICA also plays host to series of lectures, events, late night art and music parties. Housed in elegant Regency premises on the Mall, the ICA is a great place to start if you're looking for the very cutting edge of gallery art work. More about Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA)
