A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

French-American sculptor Louise Bourgeois was born in Paris in 1911, settling in New York in 1938. She began exhibiting in New York in the 1940s, and has played a vital role in contemporary art for over half a century. Her 1982 exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York was the gallery's first ever retrospective for a woman. It revealed a sculptor of immense distinction working with many materials, from marble and bronze to latex, fabric and mirror. Since then, Bourgeois has exhibited worldwide producing a beguiling body of work featuring spiders, cages, drawings and a range of found and sculpted objects. A recurring theme in her work is her troubled childhood, particularly her problematic relationship with her father. In 1993, she represented the USA at the Venice Biennalle and was the first artist to have an exhibition at Tate Modern in 2000. The book, accompanying a major retrospective touring exhibition, will provide an overview of Bourgeois' entire career as an influential creator of sculpture, installation, drawings and prints, as well as examining her activities as a writer, critic and diarist. It will include an illustrated biography, selected writings by the artist and a full chronology, making it the most thorough and up-to-date publication on the artist in print.

Description de la librairie

The Reader's Corner is such fun,it's too bad you have to buy our books on line. We have eight foot tall outside bookshelves across the entire front of the store. There is a money slot in the door for night sales, which go to support National Public Radio. Inside, which can be too crowded at times, are surprisingly good books, only 1% are ever listed on-line. We also sell records, music cd's, comic books, mags, computer software and games. Best of all is the found art decorating every spare spot. The motto on the front door: NO SHOOTING, NO SMOKING, NO MOONING THE MANAGEMENT.
