The Tate Liverpool Gallery is preparing a large-scale exhibition of one of the most influential figures of contemporary art - Louise Bourgeois (1911 - 2010).
Visitors will get acquainted with samples of painting, graphics, large-scale and chamber sculptures, installations and archival materials. The exposition will unite the works created by the author for 70 years of creative activity.
Louise Bourgeois was born in Paris in 1911, where her parents ran a gallery of tapestries. She began her career with painting and graphics in the 1940s, and by the 1960s she began experimenting with wood, plaster, latex and other hard materials, creating emotionally deep, bold and revolutionary sculptural works. The works of Louise Bourgeois are often biographical and centered around the themes of childhood, birth, loss, motherhood and gender identity.
