To celebrate the life and work of artist Louise Bourgeois, we’re showing our coverage of exhibitions and talks showcasing her work in Edinburgh. From the Scottish National Gallery and ARTIST ROOMS exhibition ‘Louise Bourgeois : A Woman Without Secrets’ to the Fruitmarket’s ‘I Give Everything Away’, we have plenty for you to see over the Christmas period.
Louise Bourgeois was born on Christmas day, in 1911, and went on to become one of the most revered artists in contemporary art. Her work spanned from painting, printmaking and sculpture. Much of her inspiration for her pieces was drawn from childhood experiences, exploration into family roles, and sexuality of the being.
Louise Bourgeois : A Woman Without Secrets is on at Modern One, Edinburgh, until the 18th May, 2014.
Louise Bourgeois : I Give Everything Away is on at the Fruitmarket, Edinburgh, until the 24th February, 2014.
