In the works of the Scottish artist Lucy McKenzie we encounter almost limitless variety, from gender politics and feminism to architecture and historical styles, to advertising and fashion. With over 80 works from 1997 to the present, the exhibition will fill the entire lower level of Museum Brandhorst, including the media galleries. Examples from all of the artist’s important work groups will be shown.


Join us on an exploratory journey through the artist’s work to date. Discover how she uses the old-fashioned techniques of 19th-century decorative painting to transform source materials and create surprising new constellations. In her works you can experience her spirit of detection, like a modern-day Miss Marple, in connecting different eras and people, pursuing timelines, and discovering how trends and ideas develop over time.
