Join us on Tuesday 24 September from 7pm until 9pm for the opening of Lutz Bacher: Black Beauty.
Black Beauty is the first major solo exhibition in the UK by American artist Lutz Bacher. Occupying an important position in contemporary art practice, Lutz Bacher’s work is receiving increasing levels of international recognition. Black Beauty provides a unique opportunity to see Bacher’s new works made specifically for the ICA together with recent work for the first time in London.
We hope to see you there.
