Final Day: Louise Bourgeois, A Woman Without Secrets, 26th Oct 2013 − 18th May 2014 (Edinburgh)

May 18, 2014


Louise Bourgeois, A Woman Without Secrets (26th Oct 2013 − 18th May 2014)

Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art

The National Galleries of Scotland is proud to announce a major presentation of works by the great French-American artist Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010) in an exhibition entitled Louise Bourgeois, A Woman Without Secrets at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. Highlighting her late work, the exhibition is a first showing of an outstanding collection of works by Louise Bourgeois now on loan to the national ARTIST ROOMS programme, includingPoids (1993), Couple I (1996), Cell XIV (Portrait) (2000), Eyes (2001-2005), and two late masterpieces, the cycle of 16 monumental drawings A L’Infini (2008-2009) and the artist’s final vitrine, Untitled(2010). These works will be augmented by important loans from Tate, The Easton Foundation and private collections. This exhibition will reveal how Bourgeois, working in a variety of materials and scales, explores the mystery and beauty of human emotions.

Louise Bourgeois, A Woman Without Secrets has been organised in collaboration with Jerry Gorovoy of the Louise Bourgeois Studio and The Easton Foundation, which has very generously lent a number of major sculptural works including Spiral Woman (1984) and a giantSpider from 1994. The exhibition is further augmented through the loan of several key works from Tate’s collection, including Avenza (1968-9), Cell (Eyes and Mirrors)(1989-93) and a group of late works in red gouache, dating from 2007-9.
