A new digital exhibition examines a storied career through a selection of drawings believed to be ‘a great mirror for our current day-to-day’
The French American artist Louise Bourgeois spent her life making artwork – mostly alone – in her New York studio. Now, with a global pandemic, and the country on lockdown, it’s an arguably perfect time to look back on some of her drawings, which capture the poetry of solitude.
To celebrate her work, New York gallery Hauser & Wirth has launched their first online exhibition, Louise Bourgeois: Drawings, 1947 – 2007, showcasing 14 drawings from the artist’s long career, which spanned seven decades. They’re calling it an online exhibit presentation and the drawings are featured alongside a short documentary of the artist in her studio.
