ARTIST ROOMS | Louise Bourgeois

Dorset Museum

From Wed 22 Mar 2023 - Sun 25 Jun 2023


Dorset Museum presents ARTIST ROOMS | Louise Bourgeois, a touring exhibition celebrating one of the most celebrated and influential figures in modern and contemporary art. Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010) created a body of work over eight decades that was endlessly inventive, ranging from monumental installations to figurative sculptures and abstract collages.

This exhibition has as its focus a collection of Bourgeois’s sculptures, drawings and prints made in the last twenty years of her life. Highlights at Dorset Museum will include the iconic Spider I 1995, Spirals 2005 and Cell XIV [Portrait] 2000. 

“Art is not about art. Art is about life, and that sums it up”
Louise Bourgeois

ARTIST ROOMS is a national programme and collection managed by Tate and National Galleries of Scotland with the support of Art Fund, Henry Moore Foundation, and using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and Creative Scotland.
