Summary note
Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010) was one of the most influential artists of the past century. Louise Bourgeois: Has the Day Invaded the Night or Has the Night Invaded the Day? explores the powerful emotional and formal tensions that drove Bourgeois's extraordinary art: between night and day, rage and tenderness, need and resistance, geometry and gesture, anxiety and calm, fear and ferocity. Spanning the seven decades of Bourgeois's career and featuring more than 120 works from intimate watercolors to large sculptures by the artist, Louise Bourgeois brings home the sense of perpetual and productive crisis of the works as crises that characterize Bourgeois's long life in art. Richly illustrated, the book features new writing by the curator and commissioned authors that offer critical insight into Bourgeois's practice as well as personal insights.00Exhibition: Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia (25.11.2023-28.04.2024).
