Description

Enter a world of emotional extremes in this exhibition of the art of Louise Bourgeois, one of the most influential artists of the past century. Feel the juxtaposition between day and night, love and rage, calm and chaos, conscious and unconscious embedded within her work. Born in Paris in 1911 and living and working in New York until her death in 2010, Bourgeois is renowned for her fearless exploration of human relationships across a relentlessly inventive seven-decade career. Come discover insights about her creative life and work flow. Louise Bourgeois: Has the Day Invaded the Night or Has the Night Invaded the Day? reveals the extraordinary reach and intensity of her art, from her haunting Personage sculptures of the 1940s to her tough yet tender textile works of the 1990s and 2000s. It also reveals, as never before, the psychological tensions that powered her search, through a dramatic presentation in two contrasting exhibition spaces. Enjoy a walk through the Botanical Gardens and Domain to reach Sydney’s most exciting new architectural landmark – the Art Gallery’s SANAA-designed North Building, located on Gadigal Country. Enjoy exclusive access to the underground Tank exhibition space.
