Louise Bourgeois: A Woman Without Secrets
By (author) Lucy Askew; By (author) Anthony d'Offay
Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010) is one of the most significant and influential figures in modern and contemporary art, whose diverse practice has challenged conventions and captured the imagination of audiences around the world. This publication focuses on an outstanding collection of sculptures, works on paper and fabric works by the artist. Highlighting the artist’s late work, this collection will bring the work of Bourgeois to audiences across the UK. As well as the works now held with ARTIST ROOMS, the publication illustrates important sculptures and works on paper from Tate, The Easton Foundation and the Louise Bourgeois Trust, offering insights into the practice of this most distinguished artist.
Lucy Askew is senior curator at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh. She was previously Managing Curator, ARTIST ROOMS for National Galleries of Scotland and Tate between 2008 and 2011.
