Editorial Reviews

Review

It places these mediums within the context of the artist’s overall practice and sheds new light on her creative process. (Arts Summary)

Louise Bourgeois’s long career began and ended with printmaking; she launched her legacy with the medium and returned to it in the years before her death in 2010. While Bourgeois is widely associated with her monumental spider sculptures, a new MoMA retrospective gives due attention to the practice that marked both the genesis and the evolution of her formidable oeuvre. (Rachel Gould The Culture Trip)

Louise Bourgeois: imagination unfolds in all dimensions...follows Bourgeois in light circling rhythms as she revisits previous subjects, expanding upon them or transferring them into more substantial media. (Roberta Smith The New York Times)

Revisiting Louise Bourgeois at MoMA...For seven decades, French sculptor Louise Bourgeois created art that often explored the female form, from sexuality to motherhood. (Rosanne Els New York Magazine, The Cut)

...a rare archive of these works, which is highlighted at the exhibition along with special paintings on loan. (Blouin Art Info)

Spiders, bodies, and the New York sky: the big and small genius of Louise Bourgeois...In 'Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait' at New York's Museum of Modern Art, a survey of the sculptor's works reveals the roots of her practice and her inner pain and joy. (Tim Teeman The Daily Beast)

What Louise Bourgeois’s drawings reveal about her creative process. (Zachary Small Artsy)

The striking feminist art of Louise Bourgeois – in pictures. (Jonathan Jones The Guardian)

...opens a little-known dimension of the artist’s practice: prints and books, shedding light on Bourgeois’s creative process. (The Maker Magazine)

At MoMA, a portrait of Louise Bourgeois as a young and old woman. (David Alm Forbes)
