Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010) was one of the most significant and influential artist personalities of our times. Highlighting her late work, the exhibition is a first showing of an outstanding collection of works by Louise Bourgeois now on loan to the national ARTIST ROOMS programme. The exhibition has been organised in collaboration with Jerry Gorovoy of the Louise Bourgeois Studio and The Easton Foundation in New York which have very generously lent a number of major sculptural works including Spiral Woman, 1984 and a giant Spider from 1994. The exhibition is further augmented through the loan of several key works from Tate’s collection, including Avenza, 1968-9, Cell (Eyes and Mirrors), 1989-93 and a group of late works in red gouache, dating from 2007-9.
