Louise Bourgeois at Hauser & Wirth

Hauser & Wirth is proud to present The Red Sky, a selection of previously unseen works on paper by Louise Bourgeois at their Los Angeles gallery until May 20th. 

Born in Paris in 1911, Bourgeois was a French-American artist. Famous for her large-scale sculpture and installations, Bourgeois was also a prolific painter and printmaker. Beginning her artistic practice in her native Paris, Louise Bourgeois was originally associated with Surrealism due to her integration of fantastic elements into her prints and sculptures. Upon moving to New York in 1938, Bourgeois focused primarily on sculpture. Her recurrent interrogation of the male/female dialectic, the family, sexuality and the body aligns Bourgeois with the Feminist movement. Likewise, her work has also been examined through the lens of Abstract Expressionism, as she exhibited with artists such as Robert MotherwellJackson Pollock, and Mark Rothko.

This exhibition will focus specifically on her writing, drawing and printmaking, that she had been producing for over seven decades. Created between 2007 and 2009, this presentation depicts both words and images that confirm the artist’s interest in central themes of memory, trauma, nature, and the body.
