Louise Bourgeois Prints

Accompanying Sharmanka Travelling Circus is this Hayward Touring print exhibition by one of the most important and influential artists of recent decades, Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010). Best known for her powerful, emotionally charged sculptures, this French-American artist’s output grew increasingly expressive throughout her career.

After many years focusing primarily on sculpture, Bourgeois returned to printmaking during the latter years of her life – from the 1980s until her death in 2010. The two series in this exhibition were made whilst she was in her eighties and have strong autobiographical themes, capturing some of her deepest thoughts, memories and anxieties. A Hayward Gallery Touring exhibition from Southbank Centre, London.
