Louise Bourgeois

Here's my review of the Institute of Contemporary Art’s other new show, “Bourgeois in Boston,” a satisfying, career-spanning selection of 20 works by Louise Bourgeois borrowed from Boston-area collections — nearly half from Barbara Lee of Cambridge, an ICA trustee and a major contributor to the institution.

It’s another opportunity to contemplate the question I asked when I reviewed the sharp Bourgeois show at the Worcester Art Museum last fall: “Is there an old geezer artist making better work than 95-year-old Louise Bourgeois?” At left is an untitled 1999 sculpture, one of the fabric sculptures (dolls) the French-born, New York-based artist has been producing in the past decade.

“Bourgeois in Boston,” Institute of Contemporary Art, 100 Northern Ave., Boston, March 28, 2007, to March 2, 2008.

Huge Fan!

We were lucky to have some of her work here in Milwaukee, where I reside. Her work is inspiring to say the least. Over the holidays I got a chance to go see her exhibit at the ICA - AMAZING, it spans over an unbelievably long time. Much appreciation for her and all of her creations!
