Louise Bourgeois: Femme

Date
Saturday, February 11, 2006Sunday, May 21, 2006
Time
10:00 AM–05:00 PM on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday
Louise Bourgeois: Femme

In a joint venture of the Walters and the Contemporary Museum, Louise Bourgeois--an important and influential living artist--installed 39 sculptures, both older works from her collection and new pieces, throughout the Walters' galleries, setting her works in dialogue with like-themed cultural artifacts from the museum's collection. Trained in the French Academy, she arrived at her mature practice in the 1940s when Surrealism was being absorbed into Abstract Expressionism. Since this time, she has consistently mined her own biography to produce paintings, prints, sculpture, and sculptural installations. Domesticity, the family romance, and the bodily and social experiences of women are among the subjects she has treated with emotional depth and psychological complexity.
