Louise Bourgeois

Louise Bourgeois 1911 - 2010

Bourgeois last exhibition in Venice (2010) I'd love to go. Oh well.

From 5 June to 19 September an exhibition entitles "Fabric Drawings" opens in Venice at the Fondazione Emilio e Annabianca Vedova. Presenting the work of Louise Bourgeois, it has been curated by Germano Celant in collaboration with Jerry Gorovoy of the Studio Bourgeois, New York and is the last exhibition in which she was actively involved. On show in the Venetian space, in an architectural setting designed to house drawings and sculptures, will be her almost unknown output of works made out of fabric, such as the rich series of her Fabric Drawings, created between 2002 and 2008, and the light presence of her Cells, like Conscious and Unconscious, 2008. Bourgeois passed away from a heart attack on May 31, 2010.
