Louise Bourgeois Celebrated at the Guggenheim

Thursday, June 26, 2008

The new Guggenheim Museum exhibit Louise Bourgeois features seven decades of the French-born artist's work. Over time, Bourgeois has worked with a wide variety of media, creating sculpted family surrogates from wood, spirals in aluminum, human figures from latex and resin, and whole narrative scenes in stitched linens, marble or bronze.

Slideshow: Louise Bourgeois

Visitors can see Bourgeois's concepts sketched out on paper displayed next to the sculptures and installations, and follow her career as an American artist through the eras of Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism and Post-Minimalism.
