Yale Union (YU) is proud to announce its summer 2013 exhibition, a commission of new work by British artist Lucy Skaer. From approximately 22 tons of lithographic limestone quarried from northeastern Iowa, along with cast terra cotta and milled mahogany, Skaer will create sculpures for installation using the entire second floor of the Yale Union building.

The exhibition will open on July 19th and run until September 12, 2013. Open hours are Thursday through Sunday, 12pm to 6pm. 

Lucy Skaer was born in Cambridge in 1975. She attended the Glasgow School of Art, receiving her BA in 1997. Skaer makes just about everything--sculpures, drawings, videos, films, and prints. She has had solo exhibitions at the Chisenhale Gallery, London; Kunsthalle Basel; Kunsthalle Wien; and Location One, New York. She represented Scotland in the 52nd Venice Biennale, and she was shortlisted for the Turner Prize in 2009. Skaer lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland.
