Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait explores the prints, books, and creative process of the celebrated sculptor
Bourgeois’s printed oeuvre, a little-known aspect of her work, is vast in scope and comprises some 1,400 printed compositions, created primarily in the last two decades of her life but also at the beginning of her career, in the 1940s. The Museum of Modern Art has a prized archive of this material, and the exhibition will highlight works from the collection along with rarely seen loans. A special installation will fill the Museum’s Atrium.
Bringing together some 220 works, the exhibition (24.09.2017 - 01.01.2018) celebrates the Museum’s archive of Bourgeois prints as well as the completion of the online catalogue (Text: MoMA New York)
